Speaker: Hans Harmon, student, EECS, University of Kansas, 2002.

Modified Transcript: The fact that the rover has to be semiautonomous affects our platform choice because, not only do we need a platform that will be able to carry the equipment as well as be able to survive in Antarctica, but it also needs to have easy ability to convert it over to something that is autonomous.
