Abstract

In this note, we propose a new driving unit for a rover on small gravity asteroid MINERVA-II. MINERVA-II will be carried by Hayabusa-2 which will be carried by H-IIA rocket launched in 2014. In designing the rover, the most difficult point is lack of information of the target asteroid. To overcome this diffilulty, we propose a kind of passive type driving system. Concretely, we try to apply buckling phenomenon and use spring. As the result, very simple driving unit for unknown field will be developed.
