Students also spoke about requirements for Lunabotics competition. "The design should be such that the robot is able to dig lunar regolith (loose material that covers rocks), collect it and dump it into a bin of a certain height. The robot cannot weigh more than 80 kg and it should be able to collect at least 10kg of lunar regolith in 10 minutes," Khera said.
The next few weeks will be dedicated to testing the robot with different types of soil. "Lunar regolith is very expensive. So, we are going to test the robot on different types of soil," Ritika Khera said.
