Field Test Morocco - Mars Analogue Simulations in the African Desert
This talk gives a report on field tests organized by DFKI RIC in Morocco during November and December 2018. The field tests were part of the EU project "FACILITATORS", in which DFKI was responsible for the provision of infrastructure to test and validate software and hardware that had been developed in other EU projects.
Based on a trade-off analysis it was decided to use SherpaTT as a robotic platform and to select the desert of south-eastern Morocco as test area.
The talk will describe the preparations and execution of the field tests, report on the results of the tests, and mention the numerous logistic and technical challenges that had to be faced before the mission could be successfully ended.
