By default Leo Rover is remotely controlled with video streaming and UI ready-to-go. It's not autonomous, but it's autonomy-ready. The software is based on Ubuntu 20.04 and Robot Operating System (ROS) which is known for easiness of autonomy and semi-autonomy features implementation.

The simplest way is to add a lidar or stereovision camera to enhance the Rover self-navigation and then build your features on top of that. The Rover itself has one front camera and 4 wheel encoders on board, so it provides video streaming and basic odometry out-of-the-box.
