Moreover, they are less sensitive to the regolith properties of small body objects. Indeed, unlike other types of actuation, hopper designs seek to exploit the low gravity to their advantage, rather than facing it as a constraint. A particularly useful bonus of internal actuation mechanisms on hopper platforms is self-containment of moving parts, which significantly reduces the problem of dust contamination and thermal control. One of the potential drawbacks to hopping mobility, however, is precision maneuvering for targeted instrument placement and sampling hard surfaces.
Outside of four-wheeled rovers, a number of previous efforts dating to the early 1970’s have recognized the potential of two-wheeled rovers for steep terrains. Several efforts have converged on a robotic body morphology consisting of a simple axial body with two wheels and a caster, as recently exemplified by the Scout robots , designed for military applications. A similar tethered rover with three large inflatable wheels was proposed for future Mars missions . Independently conceived, the family of Axel rovers was initially developed a decade ago to provide modularity and separation between the most failure-prone mobility elements and their respective science payloads [64, 95].
3 Extreme Mobility Among the top technical challenges of technology area TA04 is maneuvering in diverse NASA-relevant environments—a task that encompasses a wide range of environmental, gravitational, and topographical conditions. Space exploration in such environments is enabled by three types of maneuvering: surface mobility, abovesurface mobility, and below-surface mobility. We focus here on the part of surface mobility called extreme-terrain mobility, which pertains to terrains with extreme topographies, large distributions of hazards, and/or unique regolith types.
