This paper describes the localization problem in planetary rovers and its influence in the mission success. This manuscript gives an overview of the localization subsystem from a system level perspective and its impact on mission operations. It discusses current problems on the design of proper sensor fusion scheme and addresses future challenges which needs to be pursued in order to move forward planetary rovers into more intelligent vehicles for future planetary missions.
