We created a basic rover which costs under $150 and can be built within a couple of hours. All of the parts of G9, our rover, can be bought online and building the rover is easy, no electronic background or experience is needed. Controlling of G9 is easy. We have an API to control rover and rover's movement is controlled via HTML5 Orientation API. Therefore, without installing any software, you can control the rover with your phone's or tablet's browser.

This project is solving the ExoMars Rover is My Robot challenge.


Who we are?

We are 3 computer engineering students, without enough experience to build a rover. We decided to create a simple ExoMars rover which can be built by anyone.

What is G9?

G9 is our rover. G9, is a basic but extensible rover to test designed algortihms for ExoMars Rover. G9 is an easily accessible rover, all of the parts of G9 is bought online, there are no hand-made parts.

What can we do with G9?

You can build your own rover and add extra functionality for your purpose. G9 has an API to control it's GPIO ports. This makes much more easier to control the parts you added. For example, you can add an arm to G9 and that arm can be controlled from any browser.
