Has anyone added up the odometry of all rovers (Sojourner, Spirit, Opportunity and Curiosity)?

100 + 7,730 + 38,340 + 2,852 = 49,022

and I find 142 kms on the Moon once Lunakhod distances have been revised (42 and 9,93). Well, this will improve by year end, eventually.

Since sol 402 the graph moves up in a straight line, about 30 m/sol. Can anybody comment on this average? Emily mentions in her blog that there is pressure to drive, drive, drive, but I also remember NASA's own Curiosity brochure that mentions "On average, Curiosity is expected to travel 200 m per driving day, depending on power levels, slippage, steepness of terrain, visibility.."

After more than 400 sols of building up experience with terrain, auto-nav etc. it may be possible to review this - on the face of it - 7-fold difference between "design" and "actual". Until then, every day I open the stats and the maps messages in UMSF I'm hoping to see this 200 m mark.. smile.gif

The terrain is just too rough for now; they can't see far enough to plan things out, no matter the autonav. If this was Meridiani, then sure, but it's not, at least until they get closer to the dunes, see how much better that corridor is.

Look more closely at that graph - there are many days in that graph that are not drive days. The last 10 drives have averaged more than 70 meters each. ( thank you http://curiositylog.com/ )

That brochure should be considered...a brochure. It's not an engineering analysis, it's not a peer reviewed paper in an engineering journal - it's just...a shiny brochure.

200M represents a round number near the upper limit of what Curiosity may eventually reach given full deployment of Autonav, smoother terrain with better visibility etc etc.

We may not see 200M in a sol - but in a perfect scenario we might.
