ST. PETERSBURG, October 2. /TASS/. Russian scientists are creating a new robot control system that will eventually allow the country to build a lunar base, Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) Head Oleg Ostepaneko said on Thursday.
There will be three robots on arth: two in Russia and one outside Munich in Germany as this is a joint project with the German Aerospace Center. The robot in Germany will go along a preset line without touching the edges of the metal plate it will move around.
“This will be a motor coordination exercise for cosmonauts,” Vladimir Zaborovsky, chair of the university’s department of telematics, told TASS.
“It will be up to the cosmonaut to decide how this system will move,” Zaborovsky said.
He said the project named Kontur-2 is part of a larger program of preparations for building a lunar base for geological research and construction of a station on the Moon where most of the work is to be done by robots.
