University rover advances to finals in ESA/ESRIC Moon competition

SpaceR, a Space Robotics Research Group of the University of Luxembourg’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT), was selected on 29 March for the finals in the ESA/ESRIC Space Resources Challenge. The primary goal of the challenge is to characterise and locate resources like water and metals with some ground truth measurements and produce an accurate map of a little impact crater a few hundred meters from the lander. Five teams have advanced to the final stage of the competition. The winning rover of the five finalists will be chosen in September 2022, and will explore and prospect on the Moon on an upcoming ESA mission.
