My prototype is named RAC (Regolith Autonomous Collector). It’s a robot that has an autonomous feature, and uses solar energy for functioning. Rac’s purpose is to collect regolith more efficiently so scientists can study the dirt and possibly use it to build things like furniture etc. The RAC is made of heavy stainless steel. The steel can repel regolith. RAC also has sticky traction on his wheels for mobility and gravity control. It has a Pac man shaped 360 degrees scoop with a vacuum feature while scooping very light regolith. It also has a 360 degrees rotation camera on front and rear so scientists can see what RAC is doing. This robot has many other exciting features, but you can see all of those in my design. The best part of this prototype RAC, is that it has a computer panel that operates autonomously and wirelessly.
