The MARS testbed


The Micro-Autonomous RoverS Test-Bed consists of six small rovers that move freely on a large flat granite table. Each rover has two independantly driven wheels, allowing rovers to rotate on the spot. Sensing is accomplished via an overhead vision system. Located on the top of each rover is a distinct pattern of LED's that are detected by the vision system to distinguish the robots. All processing for the robots is done off-board.
