How might we design a system to help a rover navigate unfamiliar lunar terrain with limited resources?


The rover navigates through lunar terrain by capturing images after every maneuver which results in an overwhelming amount of images during the mission. How do we store all the images captured in a way that is valuable during and post operations? In addition to dangerous obstacles, it must avoid areas of shadow due to its dependence on the camera. How do we design an interface to minimize errors and allow users to recover quickly under all the technical constraints? How do we identify the points of interests and threats?

Received 79.5 million dollars from NASA.



Navigating through unknown terrain with a camera results in an abundance of images that need to be filtered. How do we organize the information in a meaningful way that could minimize the risks of a high stakes mission?



A flexible architecture of image storage that allows the categorization of images in the form of cards. The cards are stored for post-mission purposes and visually represented on a map in real time to manage any risks that could end the mission.
