The team consists of 15 members led by Chief Engineer Nathan Justus. There are four lead engineers incorporated by Dane Schoelen Project Lead, Bill Doyle Electrical Lead, Brent Wolf Mechanical Lead, and Jacob Jordan Computer Science Lead. This team has stepped up to the plate to compete against the best. A limited amount of teams were allowed into the competition; this team beat out three other teams one of those teams being MIT. Many hours and long nights have been put into the rover. This team strives to perfect the rover, and takes pride representing the University of Oklahoma along with their fans at the competition. Wining this competition is the goal and anything less to this team would be unacceptable.
