Maker Robots for Autonomous Network Robot Systems Development

NASA's Cooperative Autonomous Distributed Robotic Explorers (CADRE) project is developing a network of mobile robots with the goal of cooperative autonomous exploration of the Moon, Mars, and beyond. Through the system design and collaboration of electrical hardware and robotics perceptions, the student team designed, built, and integrated a platform of software and devices in the form of an Open-Source Rover. The rover actively provides real-time data from an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), GPS, RealSense Camera, and wheel speed sensors using Wi-Fi to store valuable information and navigate autonomously.
