Human-powered Moonbuggy

In this project, I worked in a team of 15 RISD Industrial Design students to build a human powered moonbuggy (lunar rover). In April 2010, we entered the 17th annual NASA Great Moonbuggy Race and won the 3rd place in the college division.

The design and functionality of the moonbuggy was mainly driven by the Moonbuggy Race rules, which were: the vehicle must be human powered; carry two riders; be less than 4ft wide; and fit into a volume of 4'x4'x4' before assembly.
