Designing the NASA JPL's Mars Curiosity Rover (Siemens PLM)
Daren Rhoades, new product development manager for Siemens PLM and former JPL employee. Daren was an engineer in the Space Craft Structure Group at JPL and a member of the Rover Design Team. While at JPL, Daren used NX for design, motion simulation and stress analysis to speed decision making. In the NX rendering of the rover to the left, different systems are color coded. Daren's specific job was the gray box in the middle that houses everything from scientific instruments, wiring, computers and telecommunications equipment.
