Filling the gap for readers from both academia and industry wishing to pursue their studies and/or careers in this emerging field, this is a one-stop tour of the history, evolution, key systems, and technologies of planetary robotics.

The book provides a comprehensive introduction to the R&D aspects, ranging from robotic vision, surface rover locomotion, navigation, and remote/semi/autonomous operation, to sample acquisition/preparation, and subsurface mobility. It equally offers a systematic overview of major planetary robotic systems, covering the rovers, manipulators, samplers and drillers. It also includes a chronicle to explain the evolution of robotics within planetary missions since the Surveyor 3 mission in the 1960s.

The definitive reference on autonomous robotics and an important contribution to current and future programs run by such space agencies as ESA and NASA.
