Yonder Dynamics returns for its second year with an improved rover for the University Rover Challenge competition. Thanks to all of our leads and members for their incredibly hard work making this year's rover. Special thanks to Wayne Phung, Joung (Henry) Hun Suk, and J.J. Jabuka for filming and editing our video!

 

Yonder Dynamics is a student robotics organization at UC San Diego formally established in fall 2016. Last year, as our primary project, we designed and built an autonomous Mars rover for the annual University Rover Challenge (URC), a prestigious international competition for college students. Out of 82 semifinalist teams from 13 different countries, Yonder Dynamics made UC San Diego history by becoming the first team from our school and the only team from the UC system in 2017 to make it to the final round. For this achievement, we were featured on local news and by our school newsletter. Our rover Courage, built in a record three months, finished in 29th place.

Above all, our people are our mission. We believe in developing individuals from the ground up to prepare them for their future endeavors. Now with over sixty active members from a variety of backgrounds, we pride ourselves on inclusivity–robotics is for everyone.

At Yonder Dynamics, we believe in the thrill of discovery.

From an autonomous rover to an amorphous hand, our team of young innovative minds will take us anywhere they can dream up.

In the world of today, we have self-driving cars on the streets and robotic emissaries on Mars. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?
