Title：Intelligent Teleoperation of Lunar/Mars Rover working in the Extreme Conditions
Abstract:Five years ago, the Yutu-2 rover landed by Chang’e-4 probe started its long term exploration activities on the back of the moon. Now, it has become the longest survival rover that worked on the lunar surface. Recently, many international countries had proposed their moon exploration programs. The most representative work is the Artemis plans, which is proceeded by NASA and will focus on the exploration of lunar south pole. Correspondingly, China's space agency also developed our own lunar exploration program, which is also focused on lunar south pole and may last for more than ten years. Combining the above background, in this report, we focus on the new challenge of the lunar south pole exploration and the development trends of the new technologies. First, the latest international development is introduced, and then the current situation of our own country in teleoperation of lunar rovers is presented. Based on the analysis of the development trends, new technological paradigms for teleoperation is proposed, and a bright perspective is described. Finally, we conclude the report and give brief introduction to the intelligence frame for the future lunar exploration.

Title：Intelligent Integrated Communication and Computation System
Abstract:Traditional wireless communication networks are facing crucial problems such as high power consumption, separate optimization of communication and computataion resources, and lack of joint communication and computing design for large scenarios. Aiming at the opportunities brought by the integration of communication and computation, it is urgent to study and develop new communication theory methods to reduce the performance gap between communication and computation theoretical theory and the overall performance of the network. The main contents of this talk include the theoretical model of the integrated communication and computation system, the design of the data-oriented intelligent integrated communication and computation system design, and the model-oriented intelligent integrated communication and computation system design.

Title:Development and evaluation of BCI for operating VR flight simulator based on desktop VR equipment
Abstract:Advancement of brain-computer interface (BCI) has shown its applications in various scenarios, including flight control. Flight simulator is a crucial part for aircraft design or experiment. Desktop virtual reality (VR)-based flight is a perfect choice for overcoming existing problems in head-mounted VR flight simulations, such as dizziness and isolation, which make interaction and sharing very difficult. In this paper, a BCI based on the steady-state visual evoked potential paradigm and a VR flight simulator were developed and integrated. The performance of the developed system was evaluated quantitatively for comparative studies. Experimental results show that the developed system is very convenient and suitable for VR flight simulations. The average operating accuracies with plane and VR visual stimuli are 81.6% and 86.8%, respectively. The VR visual stimuli can improve the average operating accuracy by 5.2% compared with the plane visual stimuli.
