The MSU STARX Team (STrength Augmenting Robotic eXoskeleton) is designing and manufacturing a strength-augmenting robotic exoskeleton suit. University of Michigan also has an exoskeleton team and is starting to host a yearly competition called the ACE Competition. Their first competition will be in May 2018 and will be against a handful of other schools (mostly Big Ten Schools) that have similar teams. The competition is to put your suit to the test and run it through something called a "fireman's challenge" to test our suit for real life applications.

MSU STARX Team was origionally housed under BMES but is now its own RSO! There will still be close colaboration between the two groups.
