Rocky 7, Long Range Science Rover, 1996 (long version) - <br>
Part 1: This video describes the research accomplishments of the Long Range Science Rover task in 1996 using the Rocky 7 rover. Demonstrations are shown for distributed collaborative sequence building using the Web Interface for TeleScience (WITS) and single uplink command cycle execution of: visual goal identification, spectrometer positioning and reading, verification of soil-like terrain before digging, soil digging with visual confirmation of sample acquisition, change-based position estimation from lander imagery, and long traverse navigation with sun sensor heading determination. Time lapse imagery of the entire demonstration is provided. (10 min)
<br>
Part 2: Intial development of the Rocky 7 mast is shown, including benchtop testing of its functionality for image panorama capture and instrument placement of a microscopic camera. (2 min)
