Remote Control Team’s View of SAFER Rover

This animation is the view enjoyed by the team at the Remote Control Center in the U.K. of the rover being tested in Chile’s Atacama Desert during October 2013’s five-day Sample Acquisition Field Experiment with a Rover — SAFER — trial.

The sequence, produced by the ‘Overseer’ planning, monitoring and control software produced by UK partner SCISYS begins with panoramic imagery from the rover’s PanCam, shifting to output from its autonomous navigation software including path-planning hazard maps, digital terrain models, localisation positions plus navcam images.

Finally the radargram produced by the rover’s ground penetrating radar is overlaid onto the 3D terrain. The playback has been set to 16 times real time. The background digital elevation model of the site was obtained by RAL Space using a flying drone.
