The Android Technology NGO proposes to develop a special centaur robot for exploring the Red Planet. According to Dmitry Rogozin, CEO of the state corporation Roscosmos, such a machine can be made instead of a rover, which was created as part of the discontinued Russian-European project ExoMars-2022.
Recall that Android Technology is the developer of the Skybot F-850 robot (pictured), better known as Fedor. This anthropomorphic machine visited the International Space Station (ISS) in 2019, where it was successfully used in a number of experiments.
Against the backdrop of the rejection of the ExoMars-2022 mission, Russia plans to implement its own project to study the Red Planet. For this, a long-lived stationary landing platform with a set of scientific equipment will be made. As they say now, a new Russian centaur robot can also go to Mars.
