The concept design of a novel robotic system consists of a flotilla of robots and double transmission system is introduced in preparation of a human mission to the planet. One main robot carrying the scientific and operating instruments, four smaller ones scanning for mapping makes a redundant system. Wheels for plane motion plus legs let robots move quickly and overtake obstacles. Tele-control and independent autonomous movements were designed. Equipped with macro-and nanosensors, the flotilla has a strong sensor system. The detection system positioned at the centre of the main robot allows the robot to sample and analyze. Several advances of the design were lists at last
