3. Planetary Lake Lander (PLL) - Adaptive Systems

Presenter: Nathalie Cabrol, SETI Institute
When: February 13, 2014 10AM PST

NASA’s prototype Planetary Lake Lander is a testing platform for the development of adaptive robotic systems. A NASA research team has placed the prototype on a mountain lake high in the Central Andes of Chile to gather information about the extremes of the lake’s environment. Project leader Dr Nathalie Cabrol explains her team’s work on this smart robot.

Planetary Lake Lander Project Video Series

  • The NASA Astrobiology Program is conducting research around the globe, developing unique instruments to investigate some of Earth’s most remote and extreme environments in the search for life. Not only are they are expanding the knowledge we have of our planet; they are building and testing tools, systems and technologies for future NASA missions. In this series of videos, meet the researchers and learn about their work in unique and dramatic areas on Planet Earth.
