Helping Astronauts Explore Mars Autonomously

Info about the Project

Future surface EVAs on Mars will be exploratory in nature and require flexible geospatial tools to support dynamic operations. These EVAs will have limited support from ground control and will need to be executed autonomously. This new dynamic will require IV astronauts to take a more active role in future EVAs. This study presents findings from multiple rounds of usability studies using participants from NASA and the JPL as they simulate the management of an EVA using a prototype geospatial interface.
