About us

Our team of enthusiastic students develops an exploration robotic rover K3P4. Main goal of this project is to design a versatile vehicle for international competitions such as European Rover Challenge (ERC) and University Rover Challenge (URC). Working on this large-scale system brings an opportunity to extend the knowledge in mechanical design, electronics, control, team management and collaboration which is far beyond the regular study requirements at the university.
There are undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students in our team, especially from the Department of Robotics, VSB-TU of Ostrava, Czech Republic. Being a part of the RoverOva team is a great experience and benefit for future career opportunities in various R&D areas.


Our rover

The rover K3P4 is capable of all the necessary tasks rover challenge competitions. It was designed, developes, built and tested by our team members.

It equipped with a dexterous manipulator, spring suspension, sensors and cameras. All to allow the operators a smooth control of the robot.

We are currently upgrading our rover and making it robust for more challenges.


Our team

Graduate and undergraduate students from the Department of Robotics have come together to form this team and compete with team all over the world.

We are mostly mechanical engineers and this project is a great way to introduce us to new skills in electrical engineering, programming, practical use of sensors and project management.



This project of our has attracted attention of a few journalists already!

The rover had it's first time on air in a live broadcast on a czech tv station Česká televize.

The team provided interviews to a several local newspapers.


2016 - Team formed

We visited ERC 2016 as guests and were inspired by all the ingenious solution the student teams came up with. We thought we would give it a shot as well and decided to form a team.

ERC 2018

Our first competition was the European Rover Challenge 2018. We managet to get the fifth place and obtained a special jury price for fair play.

ERC 2019

A year of preparations has come into fruition when we received the third place in Eropean Rover Challenge 2019. The competition was a lot of fun and the nights were filled with hard work. But in the end everything was worth it.

ERC 2020

This year was very different in its remote aspect. We had to learn a lot more about programming and geology. Despite our backgound in mechanical engineering we managed to reach second place.
