Welcome to the Rocket Telemetry Challenge 2023!
We have created this exciting activity, especially for first and sixth-semester students in Telecommunications Engineering.
In this challenge, students can design and build a water-powered rocket with sensors for altitude, temperature, acceleration in three axes, and rotation in three axes. All of this will be made possible using the Arduino platform, 3D printing technology, and wireless communication in 2.4 GHz.
This challenge aims to enable students to apply the theoretical knowledge they have gained in class to a practical project while also fostering creativity and teamwork.
In the design phase, students must consider aspects such as aerodynamics, rocket stability, and sensor placement to ensure accurate data readings. Then, in the construction phase, they will use 3D printing technology to manufacture the necessary parts and assemble the rocket.
Once the rocket is ready, a launch test will be conducted to measure the height reached and collect sensor data through wireless communication in 2.4 GHz.
This challenge will test students’ technical skills and ability to work in a team, plan and solve problems. It will also allow them to learn about advanced technologies and their practical applications in the field of engineering.
