Abstract
In this paper, we describe NASA Ames Research Center? K10 rover as used in the 2006 Coordinated Field Demonstration at Meteor Crater, Arizona. We briefly discuss the control software architecture and describe a high dynamic range imaging system and panoramic display system used for the remote inspection of an simulated lunar crew vehicle.

Keywords
