Sophisticated software and control systems are also part of the system, including the MER autonomous obstacle avoidance system and the MER visual odometry & localization software.
Field Geology with a Wearable Computer: First Results of the Cyborg Astrobiologist System
Given these substantial expected traversal rates of the MSL’2009 rover, autonomous obstacle avoidance and autonomous visual odometry & localization will be essential to achieve these rates, since otherwise, rover damage and slow science-target approach would be the results.

However, this latter technique with local interest points is used by the MER team for their stereovision image matching and for their visual-odometry and visual-localization image matching .

This visual odometry and localization software was added to the systems after the rovers had been on Mars for several months (Squyres, 2004). 2Right after landing, this command sequencing took about 17 hours (Squyres, 2004).
