This paper describes the operations of the 5 degree-of-freedom instrument deployment device (IDD), a dexterous robotic manipulator on the Mars Exploration Rovers, spirit and opportunity. The unprecedented flawless operations of the IDD enabled precise and reliable placement of at least 3 in situ instruments in sequential order on a designated target position on Martian rock/soil any time during the Martian diurnal cycle (day or night). These placements demonstrated a repeatability of /spl sim/1… CONTINUE READING
