METERON - Driving Mars Rover from Space

The Mars Yard Test Area at Airbus Defence and Space in Stevenage is the location for a very special test: European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Tim Peake drives the rover prototype “Bridget” from the International Space Station (ISS). This experiment is part of the ESA METERON programme (Multi-Purpose End-To-End Robotic Operation Network) which is validating autonomous and real-time telerobotic operations from space to ground. The goal is to understand and develop the technologies needed for future space
