Passive averaging suspensions have been proven highly effective on rovers for improving mobility by providing ground compliance. However, the passive degree of freedom poses an added challenge to the controls problem. This paper presents a controller design to increase the accuracy of straight line trajectories for rovers with passive suspension on rough(More)
This paper presents the design and experimental validation of a modular robotic platform for planetary exploration. A rover, ORYX 2.0, is designed and developed to serve as a research platform that can transport payloads over rough terrain. Field testing is conducted to evaluate the mobility potential of ORYX 2.0's passive kinematic suspension. Data from(More)
This paper discusses the design of a modular drive system for a planetary rover, and presents the testing and thermal monitoring results to validate the design. A rover, Oryx 2.0, is designed and developed to serve as a research platform that can transport payloads over rough terrain. One of the key design features is the modular drive system. The(More)
