    Train like a rover-driving astronaut

    Published on Apr 28, 2016

    On 29 April 2016, ESA astronaut Tim Peake will take part in an experiment dubbed 'SUPVIS-M' (Supervisory Control of Mars Yard Rover) in which he will operate, from the International Space Station (ISS), a UK-built rover – Bridget – located in the Airbus Mars Yard in Stevenage, UK.

    The experiment is part of Europe's METERON (Multipurpose End-To-end Robotics Operations Network) project, which aims to prepare for future human-robotic missions to the Moon, Mars and other celestial bodies. Considerations such as which tasks are robotic and which human, and what data are needed to support the monitoring and control of assets, like vehicles on a planetary surface, will feed directly into plans for future exploration initiatives and the design of mission systems. Prior to the live rover control from the ISS, Tim Peake was shown this video to provide him a general overview of how the rover works and to familiarise him with the space-to-ground data links. Part of the experiment aims to study how humans naturally and extemporaneously interact with robotic systems, so this video provides a general overview in just sufficient detail to enable him to get started. As such, it's been produced at a level that is understandable to non-specialists, so we thought we'd share it here in YouTube.

    Tim Peake drives Mars Rover Bridget

    Published on Apr 29, 2016

    From the International Space Station (ISS), astronaut Tim Peake drives Mars Rover “Bridget” on the Mars Yard Test Area at Airbus Defence and Space in Stevenage, UK.
    The experiment is part of the ESA's Multi-Purpose End-To-End Robotic Operation Network (METERON) programme for testing autonomous and real-time telerobotic operations from space to ground.
