More than a name: "V.Vulpes" - The Red Fox.
Vulpes.Vulpes in Latin, more commonly know as The Red Fox - Sly, clever, cunning, master of its environment. Specifically suited for rapid adaptation and survival in harsh climates.
The neural imprint of specifically selected adult Red Foxes are fused with advanced AI subsystems and embedded into state of the art robotics: The V.e.r.a.1.
This process, know as "biologically enhanced artificial intelligence" lets nature handle many aspects of the final software resulting in a truly alive rover who's natural instincts and evolved species traits make the perfect compliment to our tightly controlled on board operating system.
The V.e.r.a.1 exploration rover is able to naturally adapt to any environment, create solutions on the fly, and learn from its mistakes.
