Picorover

A new rover concept based on a tiny sphere with two degrees of freedom has just entered the Team FREDNET lunar rover design competition. Whether this rover will be able to fulfill the mission requirements is unknown at the moment, nevertheless, I see this concept as very appealing for scouting planets with harsh environment. The rover is called Picorover and you can participate in the discussion in the Team FREDNET forum.
