My Lunabotics robotics concept for a lunar rover meant to move the regolith is named the Junior Artimes Lunar Rover, or just JALR (pronounced Jaller.) It is fitted with many of the necessities needed to help move around in the harsh lunar dust, like one pair of treads on the bottom. Using a claw attached to its arm it can pick up and move the Lunar regolith away and to various places. The JALR is imagine to pick up more dust but travel less distance away from the sender. All equipment that is exposed on the outside of the vehicle including wheels is covered in special titanium covers that protect it from the harmful Lunar dust. The Junior Artemas Lunar Rover if selected should be one of the many machines taking part in the new exploration of the Moon by NASA and its cooperators in the brand new Artemas program.
