This colorful schematic drawing shows the square warm electronics box atop the triangular rover equipment deck (RED).  This represents the center of the rover where the avionics are housed.  Arrows with text label critical parts like the batteries, the UHF radio and the inertial measurement unit (functions like an inner ear for balance).

This schematic drawing gives an overview of the vital parts of the rover housed in the warm electronics box, including the batteries, the UHF radio and the inertial measurement unit (functions like an inner ear for balance). The WEB box sits right beneath the triangular rover equipment deck (RED).
