The Lunar Active Research Rover (L.A.R. Rover) is designed to study the ground throughout its journey, and to collect lunar soil/regolith. Powered by solar, and batteries that store the excess energy collected. L.A.R. Rover has drills along the bottom to break up the harder soil so that the robotic arm/hand is able to collect and capture the regolith. The arm is shaped like an excavator bucket. At the bottom of the holding chamber is a hatch that will open down to release the samples, and at the top is another hatch that open and closes to contain the samples. In my design I have also included sensors so that we can chart and map the Moon's surface so we can determine the best spot to place the Artemis Moon Base. This will also help us study how the Moon's Atmosphere might affect buildings on the moon over time.
