In the future, robots are going to help us explore Space and the surface of other planets and their moons. Take the Leng AUV for instance. It is a vehicle that may one day be used to complete missions in the ice-covered ocean of Jupiter’s moon Europa.
This video shows a fully autonomous mission performed by this robot. The vehicle undocks from the IceShuttle and searchers for gliders that act as acoustic navigation aids. The Leng AUV searches the bottom and docks again to transfer data.
