Flight Projects

Robot Sequencing and Visualization Program (RSVP)

M2020 RSVP for the Mars 2020 rover operation has been built upon the RSVP software developed for MSL with additional tools for sequencing automation (MobSketch, ArmSketch), flight-software-in-the-loop simulation (SSim) and target evaluation and refinement capabilities. These new user interface and simulation tools are developed for achieving the five-hour timeline requirement of surface operations. M2020 RSVP has been used for sequencing Perseverance’s mobility, arm, sampling operations, and visualizing the telemetry of the experimental Mars Helicopter, Ingenuity.
