NASA has just unveiled one of the most incredible Rover concepts in its history. The rover, called the duaxel, is actually a combination of two rovers. Rovers can be separated from each other and anchored, allowing each other to safely explore inaccessible areas. < / P > < p > NASA’s willpower rover is on its way to Mars. This high-tech machine is more powerful than other robots sent by NASA to the red planet so far, but it is very similar to NASA’s Rovers such as curiosity and opportunity. It’s a scientific mobile platform, so it wasn’t built to best adapt to the worst terrain on Mars. < / P > < p > but in the future, rovers may be able to accomplish more impressive exploration feats. A new NASA rover concept called duaxel is a glimpse of future planetary exploration. The duaxel is a more traditional aircraft design, with four wheels, rather than the six wheels commonly used in NASA’s Rover design. This may make it look inferior at first, but duaxel has many tricks that make it an incredible machine to explore other planets. < p > < Axel > there’s actually a secret to the combination of two roaming cars. They are two connected two wheeled Rovers. The two smaller rovers are both called axels — so they’re called duaxels. This design allows the rover to separate and investigate various inaccessible areas. Using a rover and a central device as anchors, the two wheeled Axel robot conducts surveys on deep slopes or dangerous areas. < / P > < p > when the robot is exploring, if it is in trouble, the tether connected to each Axel can be used as an escape rope to help it return to the anchoring device. Tethers can also power the axel robot as it explores. This is an excellent design for exploring and studying some of the most remote areas of Mars, the moon or other planets. < / P > < p > NASA recently tested the rover on some of the more extreme terrain on earth, demonstrating its ability to climb steep rock slopes and easily accomplish scientific goals. < / P > < p > “duaxel performed very well on site, successfully demonstrating its ability to approach a challenging terrain, anchor, and then release its tethered Axel rover,” Issa nesnas of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory said in a statement. “Axel then autonomously maneuvers down the steep rock slope, deploying its instruments without the necessary robotic arms. Duaxel has opened up the way to more extreme terrain on planets like the moon, Mars, mercury, and possibly some ice and snow worlds, such as Jupiter’s moon Europa. ” Global Tech
