In addition to space architecture and Russian science fiction movies,
Our partners at Veliky Novgorod State University's Laboratory of Innovative Radio Systems have developed an alpha version of Moon rover software.
This computer vision software interfaces with dual cameras for stereovision as well as a laser scanning tool for obstacle detection. It will help our rover travel autonomously on the lunar surface.
The year 2009 ended with the team engaged in a series of critical hardware-related experiments designed to ensure the surviveability of the components aboard our lunar rover. Given the Moon's extremely low temperatures at night in particular, there is considerable emphasis on cryogenic testing.
Members of the first and only Russian team participating in the Google Lunar X-Prize made their first formal presentation at the Memorial Museum of Cosmonautics in Moscow. The team's formation was announced just two months ago.
