Study on hopping rover for asteroid explaration

Study period:1997 - 1999
Organization (1):
Investigating Researcher (4):
Research overview:
Using the traditional wheel rover under a microgravity environment such as minor planets makes positive asteroid-rover contact not maintained, because of irregularities of the asteroid surface. In this respect, this study examines a mini-rover having hopping function, and proposes and experimentally examines a new rotary moving mechanism using a torquer.
