Welcome to the home of Max the SV-ROS entry into the 2016 Nasa Sample Robot Return Challenge.

While we made our run. First one to do the level 2 attempt over the Labor Day weekend 2016.

We came really close to being in the money. Overall got 2nd place by getting 3 points on the platform. Maxed-out logo

We might even had been in the money if WPI put the pre-cache where they said they were going to.

To give you an idea of what an achieve this was/is for our team.

Team Maxed-out:

  • did better than 40+ other teams that attempted this challenge.
  • beat teams that had 5 years of expierence we only started this last year.
  • had no funding and built two bases from the ground up, and got second place.
  • did this with really only 4 people part time, we all have day jobs not related to robots.
  • used only open sourced software and common hardware.
Now trying to figure out what to do with the 2 bases we have. If you have any ideas please let us know.

Sincerely,
Greg Maxwell
