AIR (Autonomous Investigative Rover) by James LaRussa CSE, John Paulo CSE, Edward Hammond CSE, and Thomas Beaulieu EE
The Autonomous Investigative Rover project is an effort to show that bringing autonomy to Mars exploratory rovers would greatly increase the scientific return of each mission. Our solution is to program a rover to autonomously identify interesting objects in its environment and then alter its path so that these objects can be further investigated. We designed our Earth rover with the autonomous investigative behavior in order to show that new Mars rovers could feasibly be outfitted with the same technology.
