A prototype of China's planned Mars rover is among a number of high-tech products on display at this year's China International Industry Fair in Shanghai.

Engineers say the rover has been designed along the same lines as the Chinese moon rover "Jade Rabbit," but with features to better cope with the conditions on Mars.

Xiao Jie is with the Shanghai Aerospace System Engineering Institute.

"The current designed speed of the rover remains as 200 meters per hour. It can climb a slope of up to 30 degrees, and cross a barricade 350 millimeters high. These are the designs for its capabilities."

Apart from the Mars rover, a model of an unmanned submersible that can dive some 44-hundred meters below the surface is also on display at the Industry Fair.

The event runs until tomorrow.
