Long Range Science Rover

Rocky 7, Rover Technology Research, 1995 - This video describes the development of the Rocky 7 research rover. Featured
are demonstrations of a new manipulator design for spectrometer pointing and
terrain sampling, autonomous localization by a lander viewing a colored cylinder
on the rover, obstacle detection and goal confirmation using stereo vision, and
multiple science task execution per communication cycle. The manipulator
capabilites are shown in the captured images above. More details of this work
may be found in R. Volpe, J. Balaram, T. Ohm, and R. Ivlev, <a
