“Characteristics of difficulties and solutions in Mars rover design”
Construction of a Mars rover may be a difficult task combining several issues of engineering and algorithmic nature. A key for success is to develop a reliable mobile platform under many constraints. One of the limits is communication that cannot be handled in real-time. Therefore, the vehicle has to run autonomously. How to traverse terrain blindly and reach a destination without any compass or GPS? How to grasp a stone? How to run a lab test? All these problems and many more will be discussed during the presentation.
