The robotics engineers at JPL are currently developing new robotics technologies to provide scientists and astronauts access to new kinds of planetary terrain. This talk will present the current state of the art in planetary robotics and discuss where we are going in the future. We'll present videos and demos from the Mars Exploration Rovers, as well as our current research, including traditional rovers, autonomous walking robots for orbital operations, and large-scale transport vehicles that can be autonomous or piloted.
