In future robotic space missions, it is envisaged that the majority of assets (landers, rovers, arm, driller) will be equipped with high precision cameras, hence a lot of information will be gathered in the form of images and videos. Rapid processing of this type of data can improve different aspects of the robotic mission from faster operators’ reactions to science return increase. However, both the limited on board computing power and the limited downlink bandwidth for ground based processing can become hindrances to the effective analysis of the data; the appropriate balance between the on-board and ground based processing has yet to be investigated. One reason for that is the lack of examination of the type of information that can be extracted from the visual sources and then used operationally in exploration missions. The purpose of this activity is twofold:- Identify the potential information that can be extracted based on data from simulations, analogue experiments (METERON), lessons learned etc.- Develop AI driven solutions for employing this information to assist operations such as localisation, landing, docking, grasping, etc.
