The goal of our project is to work with the Florida Space Institute (FSI) and their EZ-RASSOR rover simulation/RE-RASSOR real-world rover to integrate a robotic arm that will be used to place small rectangular bricks together to build infrastructure such as roads and landing pads on other planets/moons.
The Simulation Exploration Experience joins teams of students, faculty members, and industry advisors together for an annual international modeling and simulation conference that takes place in April.
PELT calculates and maps lunar ejecta caused by spacecraft landings. PELT, is an analysis tool, coupled with a visual simulation developed to better understand and communicate the effects of vehicle landings on the Lunar environment.
Research Education – Regolith Advanced Surface Systems Operations Robot, RE-RASSOR, is designed to emulate the RASSOR project that is under development at NASA’s development lab Swampworks.
The Arm for the mini-RASSOR is designed to place NASA Swamp Work’s regolith sintered pavers onto the lunar surface. With the Regolith Advanced Surface Systems Operations Robot (RASSOR) NASA plans to mine the Regolith and create sintered Regolith Pavers.
