Ann, this is interesting, but does the CSA plan to deploy these.  I recently saw a show on PBS which went into some detaill about the Curiosity rover.  This is a large vehicle.  One thing that was interesting was the Mars Exploration Science Rover.  Your caption states that the rover is designed to collect samples to bring back to earth.  As far as I know, this is a very expensive proposition.  The Curiosity rover has the lab built in so that it can analyze the samples in place.
