PoliTOMOON Team has been selected by ESA as one of the world best 10 Teams for the ESA-ESRIC Space Resources Challenge
PoliTOMOON Team has been selected by ESA (European Space Agency) as one of
the world best 10 Teams for the ESA-ESRIC Space Resources Challenge about innovative
Robotic Prospecting Technologies for the lunar south pole.
The target of this extremely challenging ESA competition is to develop innovative breakthrough
autonomous robotic solutions for the exploration of the lunar south pole in 2028 as a part of the
European Large Logistic Lander (EL3) that will operate in the area between the Shoemaker and
Faustini crater in the South Pole of the Moon.
PoliTOMOON is a young and highly competitive team composed by the PIC4SeR Interdepartmental
Center on Service Robotics (www.pic4ser.polito.it), the DRAFT student Team (www.draftpolito.it)
and the DIANA student Team (www.teamdiana.it) as a “joint initiative” for the participation
of Politecnico di Torino to this ESA challenge. PoliTOMOON Team is also supported by THALES Alenia
The goals of the PoliTOMOON Team are two: to develop innovative and state-of-the-art technologies
for autonomous robotics solutions that can be used in planetary space exploration and highlight the
importance of a tight link between research and student activities.
