P12215: Wandering Ambassador Test Stand


Project Summary Project Information

Over the past four years, RIT students have designed, assembled, and tested the Wandering Ambassador. They have succeeded in their goal of showcasing the creativity and aptitude of RIT students. Since the first year, the complexity of the project has grown immensely. The task of comprehending and understanding past modifications to enhance the project further has become a laborious task. Our goal is to reduce the period in which a new group can familiarize themselves with the Wandering Ambassador and enable quicker problem solving and multidisciplinary development to be performed in parallel.
