LunaRoo: A Proposal for the Google Lunar XPrize Payload Opportunity with the Part Time Scientists team
Leitner, Jürgen, Chamberlain, W, Dansereau, D, Dunbabin, M, Eich, M, Peynot, T, Roberts, J, Russell, R, & Sünderhauf, N (2015) LunaRoo: A Proposal for the Google Lunar XPrize Payload Opportunity with the Part Time Scientists team. QUT, Brisbane, Australia.
This proposal describes the innovative and competitive lunar payload solution developed at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT)–the LunaRoo: a hopping robot designed to exploit the Moon's lower gravity to leap up to 20m above the surface. It is compact enough to fit within a 10cm cube, whilst providing unique observation and mission capabilities by creating imagery during the hop. This first section is deliberately kept short and concise for web submission; additional information can be found in the second chapter.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
