Wheeling the future

NASA continues to produce ground breaking technology. Their new MRV (Modular Robotic Vehicle) prototype boosts the efficiency of standard vehicle manoeuvrability through the use of four liquid-cooled wheel motors. At the same time, its remote controlling features makes the entire driving experience extremely dynamic. Taking on dangerous expeditions require extremely versatile hardware like this. One that is not only able to navigate seamlessly but also able to travel smartly. The video showcases the vehicle’s ability to drift effortlessly, a potential feature to help in negotiating dangerous terrains. NASA made the ride extremely agile by having each of the four wheel to functioning at its own course independently. Another awesome function would be the vehicle’s ability to go driverless. Its remote controlled function allows the expedition teams to rove around many unfamiliar terrains.
