Astrium Ltd. is developing the ExoMars Rover which will be sent to Mars in 2018. One of the objectives of the mission is to search for bio-signatures of life on the planet. In its 218-sol mission, the Rover will have to autonomously travel on the Mars landscape, identify scientifically relevant sites, safely navigate towards them and perform experiments. This talk will unveil the technology on-board the Rover that will make it accomplish its mission.
