Outdoor Rover Series: ExoMy– Open-Source Model from The European Space
Agency – DPRG Virtual Monthly Meeting, May 8th, 2021
Posted on May 5, 2021 <https://www.dprg.org/> by Robie_robot

This month DPRG welcomes special guests Miro Voellmy and Max Erhardt,
members of the European Space Agency team, who will present from Germany
and Switzerland! Their presentation is on the educational mobile robot,
ExoMy. ExoMy is inspired by the Mars rover Rosalind Franklin of the
European Space Agency.

ExoMy features a triple-bogie locomotion subsystem with six steerable
wheels. All mechanical parts are 3D printed. The electronics consist of a
battery, power distribution, on board computer and camera, using parts that
are widely available and cost-efficient. The software allows teleoperation
of ExoMy using a gamepad, or a custom web interface which provides a camera
view. It is programmed in Python, within the ROS framework to make future
expansion easy and is deployed with Docker.

The project is published under an open-source license and comprehensive
assembly and installation instructions are provided. ExoMy has successfully
been built by people all around the world and is a great introduction to
space robotics for students and enthusiasts.
