WHAT IS IGLUNA?

Coordinated by the Swiss Space Center, the [email protected] project IGLUNA 2021 offers the opportunity to 13 student teams to participate in an international, collaborative project. The mission covers six research topics: life support systems, habitat conception and structure, communication and navigation, power management, human well-being and science. The Field Campaign is planned to take place in Lucerne at the VERKEHRSHAUS – Swiss Museum of Transport and on top of Mount Pilatus in July 2021. 

OUR MISSION

The overall goal of the Lunar Zebro project at IGLUNA is to design, plan and build a swarm of self-deploying, fault tolerant, inexpensive, and miniaturized robust autonomous roving robots. IGLUNA 2021 provides the project with a unique opportunity to demonstrate swarming in a Moon-like environment for the first time, as well as to test and validate some of the Lunar Zebro’s crucial subsystems.
