Our team is designing an articulating wheelset for a robotic explorer that is intended to traverse the hypothesized surface of asteroid 16-Psyche. The focus of the project is a simulation to prove that our design will work on the surface, according to the research that has been done on 16-Psyche, and a prototype of a subsection of the design.
