Creating functional and intelligent robotic agents

Planetary Robots Deployed for Assembly and Construction of Future Lunar ISRU and Supporting Infrastructures.

What is Pro-Act?

PRO-ACT – robotic collaboration for ISRU

The Horizon 2020 EU-funded PRO-ACT project will aim to develop and demonstrate a cooperation and manipulation capabilities between three robots for assembling an in-situ resource utilisation (ISRU) plant. The project will build on the technological results of other project outcomes from the PERASPERA project and its operational grants (OGs). PRO-ACT will show how robot working agents, or RWAs, can work together collaboratively to achieve a common goal.

Our first goal:

Enabling human settlement on the moon by assembling an ISRU plant from building blocks

Our Second Goal:

Partial assembly of a ‘mobile gantry’ which can be used for 3D printing building elements for human habitats and lifting heavy loads

Our Third Goal:

Effectively integrate existing software and hardware robotics building blocks to create functional RWAs
