BLUEsat came 8th in this year's European Rover Challenge out of 35 teams!! We successfully collected two objects, turned dials and switches and completed a presentation about our NUMBAT Rover in the past two days. The team is extremely happy with the result and we look forward to future competitions and improved iterations of our rover!
