Curiosity Lands 2

Posted by Doug Hull,

All the geeks know that Curiosity has landed on Mars. I am not sure of the extent of the use of MATLAB/Simulink on this particular project, but I know that JPL is a “major user” of MATLAB. I got to see the rover testing lab before the last two made their successful trip. I like to think that some engineer at JPL watched this blog and used something they learned to get the rover to Mars. If you are that engineer, please e-mail me, I have a MATLAB t-shirt for you!

If you haven’t seen it yet, I encourage you to check out this great video from the folks at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory talking about the engineering challenges they faced:

The incredibly successful landing of Curiosity reminded me of this ad we ran to celebrate the role of MATLAB and Simulink in landing the last pair of Mars Rovers:
