The Luna Pulvis Viator or LPV is a 3.5 x 2 x 2-foot robot that's goal is to collect regolith. Luna Pulvis Viator means Moon Dust Traveler in Latin, which makes it a perfect name for this robot. LPV is remote-controlled and has amazing, 360° eyesight. LPV scrapes up regolith then vacuums and filters it. The filter will guarantee that no rocks can mess up LPV’s system. It moves slow but works efficiently and fast. LPV can carry pounds of regolith at a time. Lastly, the spikes on LPV’s tracks allow it to travel on any terrain. All of these elements make Luna Pulvis Viator the perfect regolith collector.
