Planetary RObots Deployed for Assembly and Construction Tasks

Project description

Multi-robot cooperation in on-the-moon construction

Exploring space requires a lot of resources. Prolonged exploration hinges on a safe base to meet the needs of survival and to conduct scientific testing. Taking everything we need with us is not only expensive but very risky. To solve the problem of resources in space, the EU-funded PRO-ACT project foresees multi-robot cooperation to support future human space activities on the moon. Specifically, it will develop and demonstrate cooperation and manipulation capabilities between three robots for in situ resource utilisation. By testing for conditions that are like those on the moon, it will build on the results of other project outcomes.
