Rover Teleoperations Centers (2003-2005)

Three pictures: Zoe rover in the Atacama, the rover teleoperations center, and an interface screenshot of a 3D map with virtual pins.

Project Director, Lead Systems Engineer, and Interface Designer: Peter Coppin
Director of the LITA (parent project): David Wettergreen

Software and interface development: Luisa Lu, David Seneker, Kevin McCloskey, and Eben Myers.

Special thanks for Trey Smith, David Thompson, and other members of the LITA team.

Description

The EventScope educational telepresence project had been involved with education and public outreach for a number of NASA-sponsored missions including the Mars Exploration Rovers, the Odyssey orbiter, and the Life in the Atacama (LITA) project. However, during LITA, a modified version of the EventScope public interface was used as the remote science operations interface. In addition, the EventScope lab hosted remote science operations. This intimate connection with the mission operations allowed the EventScope team to bring the experience of the mission to the public in near real-time. Playing to this strength, the lab developed strategies for releasing E/PO content in as close to real-time as possible.

Rover in the Atacama

1. The Zoë rover.

Scientists using interface (P1000756)

2. Rover operations center.

3. The science team pushed virtual "pins" into a 3D terrain in order to plan and communicate exploration requests that were then "uplinked" to Zoë.

4. Stitched panoramic imagery "downlinked" from Zoë.

5. The downlink interface presented data products returned after each rover traverse.
