In 2018, the European Space Agency will launch the ExoMars rover in a search for evidence of past or present life on Mars and to demonstrate key technologies in preparation for a future Mars Sample Return mission. The following presentations outline work to date in improved processing and representation of Mars and Continue reading
The Planetary Robotics and Vision Processing Workshop took place at the European Planetary Science Congress from October 3-7, 2011 in Nantes, France. The theme for this session was: “Planetary Robotics and Vision Processing for Future Planetary Exploration”. With the success of the NASA Mars Exploration Rovers and Phoenix Lander and several planetary exploration missions either being developed or Continue reading
The Planetary Robotics Vision Ground Processing (PROVISG) project brings together the major groups currently working on planetary robotic vision, consisting of research institutions inside and out of Europe, European Space Agency (ESA), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the industrial stakeholders involved Continue reading
One key step in the development of equipment and technology to be used for robotic planetary exploration is their test in relevant environments. To this effect, field trials were conducted in the El Teide National Park in Tenerife (Spain) during September 2011. Continue reading
A Workshop on Planetary Robotics and Vision Processing was held during the European Planetary Science Congress 2010 from September 19-25 in Rome, Italy. The workshop was organised by PRoVisG partners and covered key robotics and vision processing areas that must be addressed for future planetary exploration ambitions. More information can be found here.
• Aimed at young researchers, e.g. MSc, PhD students, and Research Associates
• Invited planetary vision processing experts to provide instruction
• Specialist lectures by ExoMars 2018 mission engineers and scientists combined with hands-on vision data processing experiments. Continue reading
The Workshop consisted of Presentations, Discussions and practical experiments for data collection in the field of Planetary Robotics and Vision. Continue reading
The workshop addressed vision data acquisition / processing issues that were relevant for current and mid-term development of PanCam hard- and software, experiment planning, calibration, expected scientific data return quality, as well as the interfaces to other ExoMars components such as operations planning, navigation or other PASTEUR instruments.
