Micro-rovers are small, lightweight, robotic vehicles, often less than a meter in length. They provide a highly mobile platform for mounting a variety of sensors such as cameras, sonars, or atmosphere/soil-sampling devices. For many applications which only require small lightweight sensors, a micro-rover is a cost-effective alternative to more traditional, larger vehicles.
This paper reviews implementations of interfaces developed for Draper micro-rovers. The current interface under development uses a top down image provided by an aerial vehicle to allow control of a micro-rover at high speed.
