It is really inconvenient to try and haul the rover/rover train over to a mining site. I find a lot of unknown research modules, and it is extremely inconvenient to haul each module back one by one. 

 

It would be great to see some sort of minecart system in which you build tracks with compound, aluminum, etc., and you can place the module on the cart to be hauled back. The cart or cart station could be powered, so it is possible to run out of power for the system to fail. There could be a cart station placed at the habitat and tracks running from that station to wherever you want it to go.  The player could even jump in the cart to create some sort of alternative transportation method.

Yes, minecarts would be a great way to make exploration more rewarding. The module system you described fits into the them of the game perfectly. The devs have already thought about this idea and you can see their initial design on an old Twitter post by them:
