Autonomous Exploration through Heterogeneous Robotic Collaboration

This student team worked to develop and demonstrate software algorithms capable of supporting collaborative heterogeneous multi-agent autonomous exploration of Mars' physical environment. The students' proposed system comprises one drone and one rover. While the drone can provide a broader view of the area, the rover can complement with detailed information for a smaller surrounding area. With each robot free to move independently, together they can perform distributed measurements that would be nearly impossible for a single robot to achieve.
