what we do?

We create and design the next generation Mars Rover to push the boundaries of technology and go beyond the current Rovers deployed in Mars.

Mechanical & Design

Build a 6 Wheel rover base with CRAB Design. This will ensure better stability on an all terrain Condition

Electrical & Communications

Control and Communicate with the rover remotely with real time camera feedback.

Natural Science Research

Analyze the martian environment using our on-board sensor systems. And report back on the findings of the result

Dr. Md. Khalilur Rahman is an Associate Professor of Computer Science and Engineering Department of BRAC University. He was assigned as the Acting Chairman of CSE department from 1st Sep-14 to 31st Dec-2014. He is the Supervisor of BRAC University Robotics lab and the advisor of BRAC University Robotics club. The robot named CHONDROBT was designed and builds under his supervision. Different version of this Robot regularly attended in NASA Lunabotics Mining Competitions. Dr. Khalil has joined in BRAC University on 2009 immediately after completing his PhD degree from Kyushu Institute of Technology, Japan. He was a MONBUKAGAKUSHO scholar and his PhD Research topic was Natural Language Processing. But now his research is diverted into Robotics and Embedded Systems. His research interest also includes space science and engineering. He was born on 1976 in a river bank city Sirajganj of Bangladesh. After completing his Secondary and Heigher Secondary Schooling he took admission in Institute of Science and Technology under National University for graduation. Dr. Khalil becomes point of contact (POC) of UNISEC-Global on 2014. He considers himself as a lifetime student of Engineering. He also has dared to involve his students in the research of cutting edge technologies like Nano satellite.
