hackaday has a link up to a mars rover mockup made by Kerwin Lumpkins using a robotics development board he designed. The darc board.

To simulate Mars Rover conditions, it has two built-in complications. First, it's time-shifted: all video feedback is on a five second delay. Second, if the robot gets a command that conflict with it's sensors, it will abort the command and send back for instructions.
