The Lunar Industrial Initiative 2021 is part of Aeroid's broader vision to eventually contribute to outer space resource mining and extraction on distant planets and celestial bodies. Our aim is to send 4 adaptable robotic modules to the moon, through a commercial space carrier, by December 2021 to demonstrate our proof of concept of our Machine-2-Machine software communication protocol. 

Our aim is to apply our software architecture and cluster based autonomous operation protocol into these modular robots for verification and communication, allowing them to perform an autonomous operation on the moon.

If we pull this off, this will be the world's first autonomous swarm operation on the moon. 

Stage One

Testing of the software protocol on custom swarm robotics and adaptable robotics modules.

Stage Two

Testing these adaptable hardware modules, custom built rovers, in hostile, space testing facility, 

Stage Three

Mapping and modelling of the specific course and details of the operation.
