Two vehicle configurations for planetary exploration are investigated, based on familiar recreational objects. In both cases, integration of electronic and other systems directly on the vehicle surface is explored, rather than sequestering systems in separate boxes. Data from accelerometers and other sensors mounted on the vehicles allow investigation of the vehicle dynamics.
