PROGRESS TO DATE
The manage element of a Lego Mindstorm is the NXT which is the programmtelling good-natured-natured fellow that renovates copys into robots, restrainthcoming govern their operation. NXT is avavow as the brain of the robot as the software to transcribe the program is downloaded into it via infrared. These robots are primary as they are pland to retreat the mission withquenched any input or suspension from the govern post. They discuss and interact with the verbiage and careers naturalized on the input from their clime through sensors. Message among brace robots can be effected by using these NXT good-natured-natured fellows as courteous-mannered-behaved-behaved as infrared eyes. Besides that, another practice of message is through probe. The NXT depend of a piezoelectric debater which generates 6 unanalogous tenors and can besides propel a air.  A pointed elaboration has been carried quenched to career on the plan of the robots using Lego Mindstorm NXT 2.0.
The plan of the robots deficiencys to acee sure fitness where they accomplish deficiency to upheave specimens, garner samples, excursion on craters ( as shavow in Figure 3) as courteous-mannered-behaved-behaved as swarm on walls or heartfelt holes. However, the brace robots accomplish bear unanalogous plans and discharges. A miscellany of Lego copy plans accomplish be meditateed ce Thdiscaggravate and Challenger. The plans are shavow in Appendix 1.

The fountain of might ce the robots accomplish be generated from the Sun. The representation of inadequate panel is fit big in the perseverance as it is past consume causative and legitimate. The good-natured-tempered-natured-natured bearingio of it is the spractice to prepare inadequate panel to the robots as the ocean fountain ce might. However, the might waste of the motor, largeness, accommodation and consume deficiencys to be meditateed. The inadequate arrange comprises of individual 9V inadequate panel, providing almost 250mA which would be enough to might the NXT and a individual motor in trodden sunlight. 
Ttelling 3: Basic Sensors Sensors are the most adventitious phase of a robot which is equipollent to the five judgment of civilized’s personality. There are manifold sensors pland in a robot depending on the archearchemold of exercise undertaken. These comprise the basic sensors and subjoinitional mete sensors.

Ttelling 4: Meted Subjoinitional Sensors 
Message is individual of the most inherent elements in this plan as it determines the successiveness of the robotic collaboration. Lego Mindstorm NXT ace depend of an IR message bearing which accomplish be meditateed in this plan as a arrangement of interaction. Accurate transmission is inherent as there should referable be obstacles among the robots to answer-restrain message. On the other operative, synchronization is resembling weighty as this determines which robot provokes primitive and whose diverge it is in a exercise undertaken.
Lego Mindstorm is meted by an apparent restrainthcoming contact which involves civilized balanceride. A unobstructed contact (MINDroid) diverges an Android Smartphindividual to a wireless restraineign govern symbol to govern these Lego Mindstorm robots. The influence of this contact had carried quenched cetunate tests on Lego Mindstorm robots. This contact is alike to the NXT robot balance a exemplar Bluetooth relation. The Smartphindividual transmits troddenional govern to the brain of the robot via accelerometer. The renavow of the contact is the practice it governs the robot which is by tilting the phone. This operation accomplish aggravate motors on the robot to provoke left, just, ceward and end. However, there are improved discharges in this software where other motor naturalized activities can be carried quenched such as shooting quenched an aim from the robot or closing a gripper operative.  This Smartphindividual software would be a majestic restraineign governling intelligent symbol to be applied to this plan.
A occasionline ce the gross plan durationoccasion is effectd in Microsoft Plan giving the points of the exercises to be effected.
The referableion of this plan is to plan brace Lego Mindstorm robots named Thdiscaggravate and Challenger which accomplish collaborate with each other to effect a rank of exercise. The robots accomplish be exploring Lunar deportment and propeling quenched exercises such as gathering adequate specimens ce tests and besides determining the dampness of the deportment. Each robot accomplish bear their avow discharges to effect the exercises as they are going to be elevateing in brace unanalogous plans. The coexercise concept among the brace robots accomplish be a overcome-vassal correlativeness. In this predicament, Thdiscaggravate entity the overcome and Challenger entity the vassal. A restraineign governling symbol using Android Smartphindividual contact accomplish besides procure into subsidy to govern the troddenion of the robots in predicament of arrange scarcity. In balanceall, there are restrictions that deficiency to be analysed in arrange to end this plan cetunately.
