The development of autonomous navigation algorithms for planetary rovers often hinges on access to rover hardware. Yet this access is usually very limited. In order to facilitate the continued development of these algorithms even when the hardware is temporarily unavailable, simulations are used. To minimize any additional work, these simulations must tightly integrate with the rover’s software infrastructure. They are then called Software-in-the-Loop simulators. In preparation for the 2015 DLR SpaceBot Camp, a simulation of the DLR LRU rover became necessary to ensure a timely progress of the navigation algorithms development. This paper presents the Software-in-the-loop simulator of the LRU, including details on the implementation and application.
