GITAI’s Lunar Robotic Rover R1 in a Simulated Environment
GITAI has developed a lunar robotic rover called R1 used for moon exploration, mining, inspection, and sampling. Several testing tasks and operations have been successfully completed by the rover in a simulated environment.
The robotic rover has successfully completed different tests on a mock environment, including testing its locomotion and obstacle avoidance abilities, as well as building solar panels and taking samples.
Thanks to its omni-directional wheels, the robotic lunar rover could move over rocks on the mock lunar surface and clear obstacles in any direction.
Teleoperation is used to control this lunar robotic rover.
