And we’re off to the Canaries!

We’ve been getting all our last minute preparations done this week and in a few hours we’ll be flying out to the Canary Islands!  We’ll be meeting Selene, who flew out earlier last week, at the LRC site, so it’s probably time to reveal the Surrey Lunar Rover!

You may remember we began with a Mobile Robots Pioneer 3-AT:

For which we created a completely new mobility system, basing the control side on the Pioneer internal components:

Ladies and Gentlemen, after 4 months of extremely hard work, the University of Surrey LRC team give you Selene!
