The history of Antarctic exploration is filled with traverses for scientific and operational purposes, and they continue to be conducted today. Similarly, traverses are a crucial part of planned planetary science and operations. This paper addresses the proposal for development of an autonomous rover capable of making such extreme environment traverses while accomplishing complex tasks.
