Robotic Steering System

Robotic control is becoming increasingly integral across many disciplines and industries. Understanding the fundamentals of robotic control evolves people’s way of life into a more convenient and efficient epoch. Here in University of Rochester, robotics courses enable students to have basic hand-on learning experience over robotic control systems. This robotic steering system team is aiming at designing an inexpensive but reliable, and easy to replicate solution which fits the needs to teach the robotics courses at University of Rochester.

Team Members:

  • Gaetan Foisy
  • Andrew Miller
  • Hanna Saba
  • Tianyu Zhou


  • Thomas Howard, Electrical and Computer Engineering, UR


  • Christopher Muir, PhD, Mechanical Engineering, UR
