[Request] Drive-on/off rover docking platform

Recommended Posts

Would anybody consider tackling something like this? It'd be a drive-on/drive-off rover docking platform, with retractable ramps and an extendable docking port (the orange cylinder, shown in its fully stowed position). The idea would be to connect to a docking port attached to the undercarriage of a rover, and when it comes time to deploy, would retract out of the way to let the rover drive off.

Ideally there could be a 3.75m and a 1.25m variant, for fitting rovers of different sizes.

Here's a mockup of a potential use-case:
