Robot bred in Wales to seek life on red planet

from WalesOnline:

A Welsh academic will today showcase “world-leading space research” on a camera-snapping robot designed to look for signs of life on Mars.

Stephen Pugh, from Aberystwyth University’s computer science department, is focusing on fine-tuning the robotic planetary rover’s on-board panoramic cameras.

He is also teaching it to point and shoot at features on the planet’s surface that catch its eye when it is sent there in 2018.
