We have designed an autonomous mining robot designed to meet the specifications of the 2020 NASA Robotic Mining Competition. The rover is designed to navigate in a moon simulated environment, dig down at least thirty centimeters and return a payload, as well as meet the constraints imposed by the unique operating environment. We addressed the engineering challenges and goals that were faced, ranging from communication and obstacle avoidance to heat management.
