System for Communication and Orientation on Undefined Terrains
In the future, astronauts will explore other planetary surfaces like Mars on foot and on rovers. In the case of surface extravehicular activities (EVAs), astronauts will traverse unknown and previously unexplored terrain. This project tries to answer the following question:
How can we help astronauts explore Mars’ terrain safely and intuitively?
The SCOUT system is the result of a collaboration of 5 students from different majors (2 industrial design, 2 electrical engineering and an architecture student).I worked closely with the electrical engineering students to gain knowledge in using Arduino and learning in detail about circuits, sensors and micro-controllers.
