I was a member of Northeastern University’s team at the NASA University Student Launch Initiative competition, where I led the electrical, computer, wireless communication, and robotics systems for the Autonomous Ground Support Vehicle. I accompanied the team to the competition and launch site in Huntsville, Alabama where we spent a week working on the project and touring NASA facilities.

Although we did not win the competition, we still accomplished a great deal. I learned a lot about managing a large project and working under strict time constraints.

More information about our entry in the USLI program is available on the Northeastern University AIAA website.
