Is the robotic end effector multi-functional? If so, what other tasks can it perform?
Curiosity is multifunctional and can preform other tasks. Curiosity also magnifies objects, takes colored pictures, and more.
How is the Mars Rover taught to perform its task?
The rover gathers data and transfers it to scientists and engineers through a high gain antenna. This is considered auto-mated motor vehicle.
What sensors does the Mars Rover have and how does it use these sensors?
Cameras - act as eyes and show the scientists where the robot is and what it is doing
MARDI - allows it to plan routes
MASTCAM - creates video tape
MAHLI - allows to identify and test rocks or soil
There are more, but these are the greater ones, that matter more.
Advantages vs. Disadvantages
Advantages- Humans don't have to risk their lives going to explore Mars to find life.
Disadvantages- To get the Rover to Mars and return back to Earth it will take 150-300 days.
