The ATHLETE Rover
ATHLETE Skills, 2007 - These videos show the ATHLETE Rover's skills in 2007. The first shows two ATHLETE's coordinating to move a large object. The second shows ATHLETE dropping from a height of 1m, where 5/6 of the vehicle's weight is compensated by the test fixture to simulate landing in the 1/6g lunar environment. The third is assembled from individual toolcam images taken as ATHLETE scooped surface material using a wheel-mounted shovel. The fourth shows ATHLETE turning in place on uneven ground with the legs actively controlled to keep the rover deck level as the wheel heights follow the terrain.
