The rover will have 16 surface cameras, an autonomous drone (Mars Helicopter Scout), and a rock sampling cacher (shown here). Cameras include Mastcams and SuperCam (remote micro-imager). On the robotic arm are: SHERLOC (Scanning Habitable Environments with Raman and Luminescence for Organics and Chemicals) with its WATSON (Wide Angle Topographic Sensor for Operations and eNgineering) camera, and PIXL (Planetary Instrument for X-Ray Lithochemistry). Other sensors are: Radar Imager for Mars' subsurface experiment (RIMFAX), Mars Environmental Dynamics Analyzer (MEDA) and Mars Oxygen ISRU Experiment (MOXIE). Mars 2020 is part of NASA's Mars Exploration Program.
