The name of the robot that I designed is called The Lunar Sucker. It collects a lot of regolith in a few trips. To power itself it uses solar panels. The Lunar Sucker is remote controlled, meaning that an astronaut nearby controls it. My robot collects lunar regolith by disturbing the ground, sending lunar regolith everywhere. To make sure it does not fly off, my robot has retractable nail like shovels that dig into the ground. When the regolith tank is full the top solar panel goes down so the regolith tank can be sent upward, and from there a different remote can be used to direct it to the Artemis base.
