I made an efficient lunar robot to collect lunar dust for NASA’s Artemis mission. The robot has solar panels on top for energy and a wiper to clear dust from the panels. Also, it will have small half-inch hairs around cracks to keep out the lunar dust. There will be one rounded shovel scooper with sharp edges and one claw. They will both move a substantial amount of regolith on to the ramp that will lead to a large internal container and a back hatch to empty like a dump truck. It will have a small area below the container for the electrical components. It has small treads like a tank to move around and will be programed to go to certain dig spots. It will have two cameras for astronaut observation, one on the tip of the claw to be able to look around, the other on the front.
