This paper describes an introduction of an exploration rover prototype and a field experiment with it at a lunar and Martian analogue terrain. The self-sustainable system of the rover consists of several subsystems, mobility, navigation, electrical power, sensor, communication and data handling, allowing it to perform end-to-end operations. In the field test, the mobility performance on rough terrain is mainly verified with obtaining more than 50 states including stereo images; thus, the… CONTINUE READING
