Abstract
On July 16 2010 through August 5 2010, we conducted a field test and mission simulation of a robotic follow-up system with a robot at Haughton Crater, Nunavut, Canada, and a mission control cener at NASA Ames. During the test, K10 Black was used to conduct high priority field observations identified by human crews during simulated EVA’s conducted at the same field site in 2009. The goal of the test was to improve our understanding of how robotic followup can help improve the overall productivity of human and robotic partnerships, and how robots might best be used to complement human crews.
