Snake-like robot will land on Mars, and can be better than the current implementation of the human detector directives issued – this is the European Research Foundation of Science and Industry R & D work is now carried out in the direction. They believe that such a robot on Mars can the process of moving for better controllability.
Snake-like robot can drill into the probe can not enter the narrow space. So scientists can collect previously inaccessible area of the sample probe.
Of course, this snake-like robot is also facing some problems. SINTEF researchers believe that the best solution is to let the snake-like robot with conventional detectors partner work. Researchers Aksel Transeth, “said one of the options sucked this (snake) robot arm made of detectors, and also need to have automatically disconnected, then back to the function.” This program has a potential benefit is stuck in a pit that can help to re-return to the ground detectors.
Now, this snake-like robot is still in the early stages of development. SINTEF are being carried out for the European Space Agency, a relevant feasibility study report, they will be in December this year, a more detailed report submitted.
