|DEPTHX: Deep Phreatic Thermal Explorer (DEPTHX)
The DEPTHX: Deep Phreatic Thermal Explorer project is developing an autonomy for underwater explorers to enable them to map their environment and plan and execute science investigations. The DEPTHX vehicle will explore the flooded caverns of the Zacaton Cenote in Mexico in 2006.
|LORAX: Life on Ice, Robotic Antarctic Explorer (LORAX)
The LORAX: Life on Ice, Robotic Antarctic Explorer project is preparing technology for a robotic investigation of microorganisms surviving within the near-surface ice of the Antarctic plateau.
|Lunar Rover for Polar Crater Exploration (Scarab)
The Scarab lunar rover has been designed to carry a 1-meter coring drill and a payload of science instruments that can analyze the abundance of hydrogen, oxygen and other materials.
The Science Autonomy project seeks to improve the accuracy and effectiveness of robotic planetary investigations by enabling automatic detection of relevant science features, classification of feature properties, and exploration planning that responds on-the-fly.
|The Robotics Institute is part of the School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University.|
