To accomplish the next generation of challenging missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond, researchers at NASA centers and at academic institutions have made significant progress over the last five years towards developing autonomous systems that can make critical decisions independently of human operators. This talk will provide an overview of the current state of autonomy technology applied to deep space exploration, with particular emphasis placed on robotic surface explorers.
