Autonomous Rovers for Mars Exploration.

Richard Washington, Keith Golden, John Bresina, David E. Smith, Corin Anderson, and Trey Smith. In Proc. IEEE Aerospace Conf., 1999.




The Pathfinder mission demonstrated the potential for robotic Mars exploration but at the same time indicated the need for more robust rover autonomy. Future planned missions call for long traverses over unknown terrain, robust navigation and instrument placement, and reliable operations for extended periods of time. Ultimately, missions may visit multiple science sites in a single day and perform opportunistic science data collection, as well as complex scouting, construction, and maintenance tasks in preparation for an eventual human presence. Significant advances in robust autonomous operations are needed to enable these types of missions.
