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. Its unique features, combining a flat landscape and crater-like dips with scarce vegetation make it an ideal location to test the imaging equipment and processing techniques that have been developed in the framework of the ProvisG programme.
The simultaneously held PRoVisG Summer School in Berlin gave students the unique opportunity to obtain and process data directly from the field trial.
Live broadcasting and more information about the event can be found here.
A press day was scheduled for the 16th of September.
