Hans Harmon watches Marvin as it is operated remotely on the KU campus in May, 2004.

Hans must stay close in case he needs to jump into the driver's seat and take over manually.

Here they are doing a speed test and the beginning of a turn.


Professor Arvin Agah (foreground) and Hans Harmon, of the robotics team, are doing a test of remotely running the rover when it is on a downhill slope.
