Lunar Rover Wows XPRIZE Judges, Wins Milestone Prize
The Google Lunar XPRIZE announced that Andy, a four-wheeled lunar rover designed and built by Carnegie Mellon University, is the winner of a Milestone Prize for mobility after judges concluded it is thus far the only robot among the competing teams to meet development benchmarks for flight readiness. Other teams continue to contend for Milestone Prizes, which will be awarded Jan. 26, 2015, in San Francisco, but the CMU team is the first and only team to meet the Milestone mobility objectives thus far, XPRIZE said. Likewise, CMU’s partner, Pittsburgh’s Astrobotic Technology, is the first winner of a Milestone Prize in the imaging subsystem category.
