4). Traversing across and through alluvial fans for in situ examination would further our understanding of the underlying physical processes and composition of the ejected material [35]. As detailed topography of such fans may not be well-known a priori, robust and versatile mobility platforms are required for their exploration. Unfortunately, through the course of accessing such extreme terrain, hazards such as sinking into soft regolith or falling via landslides could be encountered. The ability to reliably avoid or survive such events in order to maintain an acceptable risk posture becomes a key feature of these platforms.

Moreover, the Cliffbot cannot recover from tip-over, and the problem of planning the motions of two tethers adds extra complexity. 7 Axel Videos (2011). v=Ijjo1nW94tY. Retrieved October 30th, 2014. A. Starek et al. Outside of four-wheeled rovers, a number of previous efforts dating to the early 1970’s have recognized the potential of two-wheeled rovers for steep terrains. Several efforts have converged on a robotic body morphology consisting of a simple axial body with two wheels and a caster, as recently exemplified by the Scout robots [121], designed for military applications.

One such example is the Nanorover [70], a grapefruit-sized rover that was proposed for exploring an asteroid surface as part of the MUSES-C mission. This rover had a symmetric design and was capable of operating in an upside-down configuration. It actively controlled its center and was even capable of hopping on low-gravity planetary bodies. Follow-on concepts included tethering the Nanorover to a Sojourner class rover for future Mars missions. The architecturally-similar SCARAB rover demonstrated an inch-worming maneuver that synchronized wheel and suspension mechanism motion to traverse high-slip terrains [11].
