The Pittsburgh Tribue-Review says that CMU's Hyperion robot excels in test for finding life on Mars. The Hyperion rover was developed by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute and it has surpassed others in simulated searches for life. The hopes for Hyperion is that it will someday search for life on Mars nonstop by constantly soaking up the sun's energy to continue operating. Hyperion has already completed many earth bound tests including an artic trek and a chilean desert trek. Someday, perhaps, Hyperion will be given it's day in the Sun to operate and try to find life on Mars.
