Spider robots will search for frozen water in craters on the moon surface

The German DFKI Robotic Innovation Center and ZARM (Micro Gravity and Applied Space Technology Center) are working on a pair of robots working together to find frozen water in craters. RIMRES will be taken with a wheeled carrier as part of the reconfigurable multi-robot discovery system project and portable six-foot robot technologies will be used. The SHERPA and CREX's named spider robots will work collectively.
The SHERPA navigator is 2.4 meters tall and can move without using a hybrid wheel-to-foot system. Giant feet in areas where the wheels are not enough to remove the robot, will be saved. The primary task of SHERPA is to provide water for the tracker robot, helping to find water in the craters of the moon.

The robot can lift the tracker robot comfortably with its 1.8 meter long arm. The CREX hexapod (six-legged crater explorer) weighs 1 meter long and weighs 27 kg. However, the size of the Moon is quite small to move, so the SHERPA robot carries this robot to the desired location. The robot with joints and multiple sensors on each leg can walk on uneven terrain, and can move on sloping terrain.
The RIMRES project is also known as the SpaceClimber project. But previously developed robots were too small to move on the moon. The newly developed spider robot CREX can easily find its way through the sensors and climb the slope up to 80 degrees. Recently, thanks to the robots' designs and skills, the future is taking shape.
