The MIT Robotics Team competed in the 2015 RASC-AL/NASA competition at the Johnson Space Center. Though they did not place in the overall competition they did win Best Manipulator Dexterity Award for having the most robust robotic arm, Best Tele-Operated Agility Award for having the fastest drive system, and the Unlocking All Secrets Award for identifying almost every rock on the field with their vision system. Last year the team placed second in the 2014 RASC-AL/NASA (Revolutionary Aerospace Systems Concepts / Academic Linkage) engineering competition, in which the team builds a planetary rover prototype and demonstrate its capabilities to perform a series of competitive tasks from a remote location.
