NASA's Mars exploration rovers' (MER) onboard mobility flight software was designed to provide robust and flexible operation. The MER vehicles can be commanded directly, or given autonomous control over multiple aspects of mobility: which motions to drive, measurement of actual motion, terrain interpretation, even the selection of targets of interest (although this mode remains largely underused). Vehicle motion can be commanded using multiple layers of control: motor control, direct drive… CONTINUE READING
