DESIGN OF A ROVER PROTOTYPE MANUFACTURED BY ADDITIVE TECHNOLOGIES
Keywords:ROVER, additive manufacturing, design, redesign, prototyping, space exploration
This paper examines ROVER-type systems, aimed at transporting human crew for research on other planets, and the development of such a prototype using additive manufacturing technologies. A classification of these technologies is presented. The main aim of the paper is to develop a prototype of the ROVER system at scale, to highlight its main features, and to use this type of additive manufacturing technology during its life cycle, thus benefiting from the realization of parts, sub-assemblies and assemblies. Several conclusions distinguish the main points of the paper and future objectives of the study.
