The LMRs' Role
Autonomous Systems Schematic
The LMRs will not be the only autonomos systems on Mission 2004. Various other mission specific systems will require computer-automation, much like many systems found in terrestrial devices like cars and air conditioning systems contain some form of computer aided decision making.
This schematic is essentially a brief overview of the various aspects of Mission 2004 that will need automation. It is intended to express the various problems and propose possible solutions. It is not an in-depth technical analysis of the various computational tasks facing the mission 2004 systems, but a general, qualitative, overview of the potential computational problems inherent in the Mission 2004 design as a whole.
As with the rest of Mission 2004, these potential issues are organized in a chronological order:Getting to Mars
