APIC (Automatic Pointing and Image Capture) is an automatic algorithm capable of identifying potential imaging targets in a single WAC (Wide Angled Camera) image and then reimaging these targets using a HRC (High Resolution Camera). Its aim is to maximise science data return from a rover exploration platform whilst minimising ground-based human intervention. This paper discusses APIC in a fieldwork context. Fieldwork has been undertaken in an effort to improve APIC’s mission readiness. This paper discusses the issues that arose during the preparations to take APIC into the field and the lessons learned from early results that were gathered.
