I have made two robots for maximum efficiency here is what they are and how they work. Lunabot: The bot has 5 solar panels on it for power and it uses an algorithm to track the suns path and to stay in it, so it always has power. The 4 wheels are a thick plastic rubber concoction so it can be rigid but also have treads to help it grip. The funnel leads to a tank that uses magnets to hold the dust. It also has an antenna and a camera to send video and receive commands. Silo: The silo uses solar power to power the controls and magnets used to harvest the dust. With the control panel you can turn the harvesting on and off and the hose that uses magnets to push the dust trough the hose and into the bot for transport.
