A Wheel Electrometer to Measure Electrostatic Fields on the Martian SurfaceA system of embedded sensors that can be incorporated into the wheel of any future mission rover would provide for a simple and fairly unobtrusive way to measure the distribution of electrostatic fields on the Martian surface and to measure variations in soil electrostatic response. This technology could perhaps be applied to different types of sensors that require the mobility provided by a rover s wheel.
