About us

Our team of enthusiastic students develops an exploration robotic rover K3P4. Main goal of this project is to design a versatile vehicle for international competitions such as European Rover Challenge (ERC) and University Rover Challenge (URC). Working on this large-scale system brings an opportunity to extend the knowledge in mechanical design, electronics, control, team management and collaboration which is far beyond the regular study requirements at the university.
There are undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students in our team, especially from the Department of Robotics, VSB-TU of Ostrava, Czech Republic. Being a part of the RoverOva team is a great experience and benefit for future career opportunities in various R&D areas.
