We are a student team and develop Mars rovers with passion!
“FRoST” is short for “Frankfurt Robotics Science Team”.
Professor Karsten Schmidt, head of the Bachelor’s degree course Mechatronics at Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences, founded FRoST in 2018. Since then, our team has grown and no longer consists only of mechatronics students – we’ve become an interdisciplinary group of 10 to 20 active team members.
Goal#1 Developing a mobile robot platform for international competitions, thus establishing and strengthening international contacts
Goal#2 Generating project topics for students and thereby helping them gain practical experience
Goal#3 Developing new components and systems – contributing to current research
FRoST is always looking for support – personell, donations in kind and financial support. Are you interested? Drop us a line.
