To achieve the ever increasing demand for science return, planetary exploration rovers require more autonomy to successfully perform their missions. Indeed, the communication delays are such that teleoperation is unrealistic. Although the current rovers (such as MER) demonstrate a limited navigation autonomy, and mostly rely on ground mission planning, the next generation (e.g. NASA Mars Science Laboratory and ESA Exomars) will have to regularly achieve long range autonomous navigation tasks… CONTINUE READING
