Designing a primitive 'Curiosity'

  • #1
hi this is my first post..i would like to start of with what everyone's talking 'bout;yes the 'curiosity' did NASA and JPL manage to pull that off! i got thinking and decided to design a primitive curiosity which moves along certain- coloured paths...awaiting your comments and suggestions.

It is a common project in college, but you'll need to be more specific about what you want to do and what you want help with if we're going to be able to help you.

well...i want to design a vehicle which will follow a particular coloured path say black.i.e move along only a particular coloured path

1. What are the main components of a primitive 'Curiosity'?

The main components of a primitive 'Curiosity' would include a mobile platform with wheels or tracks, a robotic arm, a camera or sensors for collecting data, and a power source.

2. How is a primitive 'Curiosity' controlled?

A primitive 'Curiosity' can be controlled remotely via a signal from a controller or computer, or it can be designed to move autonomously based on pre-programmed instructions or sensory feedback.

3. What challenges are involved in designing a primitive 'Curiosity'?

Some of the main challenges in designing a primitive 'Curiosity' include ensuring its structural integrity and durability in harsh environments, optimizing its power source for long-term use, and developing efficient and accurate control systems.

4. How is data collected and transmitted back to scientists from a primitive 'Curiosity'?

Data can be collected by sensors on the 'Curiosity' and transmitted back to scientists through a communication system, such as a radio or satellite link. The data may also be stored on the 'Curiosity' itself and retrieved later.

5. What are the potential benefits of using a primitive 'Curiosity' for scientific research?

A primitive 'Curiosity' can be used to explore and gather data from remote or hazardous environments, providing valuable information for scientific research. It can also be used to test and develop new technologies and techniques for future space exploration missions.
