The Canadian International Rover Challenge (CIRC) is a rover competition open to post-secondary student design teams from all around the world. Similar to other competitions, such as the University Rover Challenge, European Rover Challenge, UK Rover Challenge, and the Indian Rover Challenge, teams will simulate what it would be like as an early colony on an extraterrestrial planet. Teams will bring their prototype rover to help them accomplish challenging scenarios. The rovers will be faced with completing various tasks that future rovers will be expected to perform. These include traversing varying terrain, autonomous operations, operating a dexterous arm and much more!
The competition is a valuable addition to the education of anyone with an interest in science and technology. It offers a great opportunity for teams to put themselves to the test and show their abilities on an international stage. The challenges presented to teams will encourage and reward innovative and creative design. However, only one team can win it all!
The event is also open to spectators! This means anyone in the region is able to come and experience the thrill of the event by talking to participants and volunteers about their rovers. Spectators should be able to see the rovers in action! (https://circ.cstag.ca/about/)
