  1. 1. Range-based Wireless Sensor Network Localization for Planetary Rovers

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : August Svensson; [2020]
    Keywords : SLAM; Sensor Networks; Interplanetary Rovers; Space Exploration; Simulation;

    Abstract : Obstacles faced in planetary surface exploration require innovation in many areas, primarily that of robotics. To be able to study interesting areas that are by current means hard to reach, such as steep slopes, ravines, caves andlava tubes, the surface vehicles of today need to be modified or augmented.

  2. 2. Planetary Rover Wheel and Lower Leg Structural Design to Reduce Rock Entanglements

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för system- och rymdteknik

    Author : Natalie Lawton; [2020]
    Keywords : Mars; rover; wheels; planetary rover wheels; flexible wheels; rigid wheels;

    Abstract : This thesis looks at the SherpaTT planetary rover. The rover is a hybrid walking and driving rover that has been developed and built by DFKI and has already been deployed on several Mars analogue field studies. The SherpaTT rover wheels were found to become entangled in rocks during the last field deployment in Morocco. READ MORE

  3. 3. Compact 3D Microscopy for Planetary Exploration

    University essay from KTH/Rymdteknik

    Author : Gustav Pettersson; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : We propose using grain-of-sand-scale microscopy (1-micrometre resolution) to study the microstructure and composition of planetary material in a fast, in-situ, solid-state device. We have constructed a small and light prototype instrument (100 grams, 0. READ MORE

  4. 4. Wheel-terrain contact angle estimation for planetary exploration rovers

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Ria Vijayan; [2018]
    Keywords : Contact angle; Side slip angle; Nonlinear Kalman filter; Differential Kinematics; ExoMars BB2; Planetary exploration rovers;

    Abstract : During space missions, real time tele-operation of a rover is not practical because of significant signal latencies associated with inter planetary distances, making some degree of autonomy in rover control desirable. One of the challenges to achieving autonomy is the determination of terrain traversability. READ MORE

  5. 5. Martian Caves as Special Region Candidates : A simulation in ANSYS Fluent on how caves on Mars are, and what their conditions would be for being considered as special regions.

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Patrik Olsson; [2018]
    Keywords : mars; lava tubes; caves; special regions; relative humidity; temperature; perchloratic salts;

    Abstract : One of the most interesting questions about Mars is if life ever existed on it. One of the main requirements for life to exist as we know it is the presence of liquid water. It has been suggested by Martín-Torres et al. READ MORE
