MARS RIDE SIMULATOR WITH
Students experience the Mars Ride while learning with this system. For this purpose a Mars Exploration Rover has been produced with a working steering wheel system.
A spherical screen has been used to give the feeling of a 3D environment to the user. This way, the user is able to see the environment in a 180 ° viewing angle, thus strengthening the feeling of being in that environment. Additionally a small screen mounted near the steering wheel helps the user navigate the Rover by showing the momentary map, mission info, coordinates and altitude parametres. The user with the< given coordinates, drives through the hills, pits and cliffs based on the true map of Mars to reach the mission base and moves towards a new adventure after being instructed about the region.
