Retrieved October 30th, 2014. A. Starek et al. Outside of four-wheeled rovers, a number of previous efforts dating to the early 1970’s have recognized the potential of two-wheeled rovers for steep terrains. Several efforts have converged on a robotic body morphology consisting of a simple axial body with two wheels and a caster, as recently exemplified by the Scout robots [121], designed for military applications. A similar tethered rover with three large inflatable wheels was proposed for future Mars missions [89].

Some deeper layers may not be accessible via horizontal traverses of the surface. At high-probability locales such as these, the assessment of in situ resources in terms of presence confirmation, abundance mapping, and extraction possibilities would be critical for precursor missions ahead of human exploration [129].

Traditional forms of robotic mobility, such as wheels and legs, present bevies of new challenges when operated in microgravity. As a result, a number of innovative designs have been attempted using unconventional means of locomotion; for instance, NASA, RKA, ESA, and JAXA have all attempted various forms of hopping strategies for traversing small bodies. In fact, three missions so far have included a robotic hopper as part of their payload: Phobos 2, Hayabusa, and Hayabusa 2. Their designs, as well as most attempts of hopping mobility, made use of two basic principles: 1.
