In this study, a remote controlled mobile robot is developed for the educational studies at the Planet Researches Simulation Laboratory in the Anadolu University Yunusemre Gozlemevi. The main objective of the study is to increase the interest of students for the technologies developed within the scope of planetary researches. In this context, the mobile robot system has been developed considering the international standards for the autonomous mobile robots. It has a web-based control and management interface. With the developed mobile robot system, many scenarios could be conducted similar to Mars real environment tasks such as remote photograph shooting, drilling and delayed calibration & analysis. Tests are conducted with the developed system for showing usability of the system.
