(NASA) – Have you ever puzzled what it takes to construct a machine like NASA’s Curiosity rover, a part of the Mars Science Laboratory venture?
Now college students, hobbyists, and fanatics can get a style of what it’s like to assemble a scaled-down model of a rover utilizing plans and directions from JPL’s Open Source Rover Project.
With the profitable previous and present rovers, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California constructed a mini-rover (“ROV-E”) to have interaction the general public.
This rover is introduced into school rooms, museums and faculty occasions to show rover mobility rules first-hand.
In response to this enthusiasm, JPL engineers have designed a rover mannequin that could possibly be assembled by the subsequent technology of engineers from industrial, off-the-shelf (COTS) components for as little as $2,500.
