The Frogbot, developed by Caltech/University of Verona, is a mechanical hopper whose complete operation (aiming, hopping and righting after landing) is implemented by means of a single actuator.
The Imaging and Localisation Package (ILP) installed on planetary balloon is designed to determine the current position of the baloon in order to associate it to the scientific data(multispectral images and atmospheric data) the balloon collects.
