Teide National Park

Several scientists have been tested successfully in the Parque Nacional del Teide (Tenerife) four cameras mounted on a robotic vehicle called Bridget. This technology can travel to Mars and other planets in the future. Four cameras can take pictures in 3D and 360-degree vision; This technology is already in use in the construction of tunnels in Austria. Several scientists have tested successfully in Teide National Park four cameras mounted on a robotic vehicle called Bridget, a technology that can travel in a future Mars and other planets with the goal of getting images and advance the knowledge of space.

Bridget, created by the Astrium company, is the second time that visit the Teide National Park, space chosen by researchers because of its resemblance to Mars and by the absence of clouds. The first time that this rover stepped on the National Park was in 2006, year in which was tested its mechanism, and today has served to, in the words of Jorgina Busquets, Astrium, a step more in the development of what in the future will be the eyes of the robot. They are four cameras able to take images in 3D and in different frequency bands to determine the composition of materials and with a vision, one of them, 360 degrees.

They belong to the project processing in land of the planetary robotics vision, Provisg, funded by the European Commission and which, according to experts, will demonstrate the ability of Europe to develop a high level image processing in this field. These cameras, like Bridget, are not that will fly into space, but Yes will serve as model for future rover. Aluminium, steel and plastic project Provisg aims the development of cameras and image processing software that will serve to go to other planets, it has been found at press Busquets. These teams, it has continued, cost much money and before sending them to Mars or the Moon must be familiar with how they work.
