Amazon Re:Mars Conference

Earlier this summer, Mission Control was privileged to work with Dr. Tanya Harrison to put together a demo of our software for an audience at the Amazon Re:MARS conference in Las Vegas.
Among other things, Dr. Harrison’s talk “Roving Robots on the Red Planet,” described communications issues in operating Mars rovers (the time delays and the data transfer limitations) and the challenges current planetary exploration missions face – to highlight her point she operated a Clearpath Warthog UGV rover (our own rover was packed up and on its way to Iceland for our SAND-E mission), using our Mission Control Software thousands of miles away in the Canadian Space Agency Mars yard!
