LunAres Research Station

www.lunares.space

LunAres Research Station is an analog research station for simulating manned space missions. It was established in 2017, being the first project of this kind in Europe. It provides complete isolation, enabling comprehensive research on the physiological and psychological effects of long-term extraterrestrial human presence. The station allows to hold Martian and Lunar 2-weeks missions for a 6-person crew.

FLOX LTD

FLOX uses advanced machine vision technology to bring better visibility and performance to the high-welfare broiler industry.
When the company realized it's easier to monitor the chickens right where they live, they approached us and implemented their AI to Leo Rover.

FLOX became a partner of Leo Rover and joined a top-secret Slack workspace where they received all the support needed to run the project.

A team of researchers from HH Wills Physics Laboratory (Bristol, UK) together with ImiTec desiged a device that is carried on top of the mobile robot and is used for radiation mapping. Turtle Rover traveled all the way to Fukushima (Japan) to test the setup in real-life conditions of a disaster site.

The Space Robotics Research Group (aka SpaceR) of University of Luxembourg is one of our customers whose activities we follow and root for. On March 29, the team was chosen for the finals in the ESA/ESRIC Space Resources Challenge.

Thanks to the team’s two-robot system – Resilient Exploration and Lunar Mapping System or, simply, REALMS – they made it to the final stage of the competition which will take place in September 2022 in Luxembourg.

I own a Tesla, and like any Tesla driver, I let myself be driven by the autonomous driving system (FSD). Autonomous driving? Golf cart? Why shouldn't the golf cart become autonomous too?
- Eric Piraux, z-index

Eric’s team wasted no time – they rolled up their sleeves and got to work. As the project advanced, there emerged challenges to be met. How to develop a golf cart from a blank page and give it an „intelligent” behavior? What steps have to be taken to get to a MVP (Minimum Viable Product)? – these are the questions that the team asked themselves along the way.

They decided that the best way to approach the development would be to divide it into 5 prototypes, from the simplest to the most elaborate one.

University of Basel

A project built together with professor Nikolaus Kuhn from University of Basel in Switzerland. We customized Turtle Rover and designed a works-like mockup of CLUPI imager to be carried by the Rover duing simulated missions. The output of the project will affect a way operators use CLUPI in a real-life ESA ExoMars mission.

European Rover Challenge

Leo Rover has been a technical partner of the ERC for two editions of this event already. Back in 2020, it was quite a challenge for us as it was the first edition of the ERC that was held online. A lot had to be done to make it possible. But we rolled up our sleeves and got to work.
