Student Design Competition: ‘Robots for Relief’
Delivering aid, including clean water, food, fuel, and medical supplies to places, such as the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan, is a difficult task, as transporting bulk materials over uneven and rough terrain, in tight spaces, and over long distances is often required to help those in need.

This year’s challenge is to design and develop a scaled-down version of a transporter capable of delivering granular materials, which will be guided by, at most, one person.
