Artemis Rover Update

Tech Insider
Published on Feb 14, 2018


This is the Artemis Sr rover, an 8-wheeled robotic vehicle prototype that can go almost anywhere. The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) has been testing the rover's abilities. It's built by Ontario Drive & Gear Ltd, a company that focuses on mobility tech. Artemis Sr can overcome just about anything in its way. Its suspension can lift the frame from the ground. Artemis Sr can climb higher than any other CSA rover. It weighs 1,168 pounds and the top speed is 71 mph. It has a unique wheel system and it can carry over 600 pounds. Maybe we will see Artemis Sr rolling over space rocks soon.

I rather suspect that's 7.1mph.
Looks great!
(yes, the source says 71MPH)

Think it is actually 0.71 MPH (1140 meters per hour or 190 meters per minute).

That is a lot faster than typical maximum vehicle speed for remotely operated rovers on Mars.

The Artemis Sr rover seems to have linkage with remotely operated EOD vehicles. Which are not known for their speed.
