The MoonRanger team at the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon is developing an autonomous micro-rover that will be sent to the moon in December 2023 to search for ice, a key resource for humans living and working on the moon.
The HCI challenge is to design an effective, easy to use mission control interface to enable a small team to manage the complex autonomous operations during the mission.
In Spring 2022, the team started ramping up mission operations finalizing development of the rover. A team of five Bachelors of HCI students, including myself, were tasked with developing the mission control interface for the project as part of our 4-month capstone.
