Devon Island 2009
This album catalogues the UTIAS ASRL Field Season 2009 on Devon Island. In partnership with the University of Western Ontario (UWO), MDA Space Missions, Optech Inc., and the Canadian Space Agency, our lab took our ROC6 field robot to the Haughton-Mars Project Research Station on Devon Island to conduct robotic geological investigations in a representative Mars/Moon analog environment. We also tested core rover guidance, navigation, and control strategies including visual odometry, visual teach and repeat, long-range localization using lidar and orbital imagery, path-planning and terrain assessment.
