Robotics and Control Group

Teleoperated and semi/autonomous micro-rovers and robotic manipulators for extreme and harsh environments on Earth and in Space are designed in our labs. We are fully equipped to do in-house fabrication, integration and testing of a range of robotic systems in an Earth analogue setup for our Space projects.

Autonomous Systems Lab

  • Wheeled and legged micro-rovers
  • Single wheel, leg & hybrid wheel-leg test rigs
  • Characterised planetary soil simulants
  • Terrain sensing equipment for detection of sub-surface hazards
  • Testbeds for rover terrain interaction studies
  • Manipulation devices for sample acquisition and transfer
  • Six Qualysis motion capture system for 3D motion tracking
