【丰田和日本宇宙探索机构联合研发载人加压月球车】丰田和日本宇宙航空研究开发机构(JAXA)研发的这款车辆将使用燃料电池和电动汽车技术,为未来载人登月任务进行准备。因为月球的机动性至关重要,月球车的月球巡航范围为10000公里。目前还不清楚这款月球车何时可以量产,也不清楚这样一个大型的月球车如何进入轨道并登陆月球或火星。我们可以期待一下!

Toyota's self-driving lunar microbus: Firm unveils concept moon rover for Japanese space agency that will carry astronauts thousands of miles without their spacesuits on

  • Toyota and JAXA teamed up to develop lunar robot that can support astronauts
  • Self-driving vehicle will be able to hold two astronauts in its pressurized cabin
  • It will be designed to achieve a total cruising range of 10,000 km (6,200 miles) 

Toyota has revealed the first look at the solar-powered autonomous rover it could soon send to the moon.

The car company teamed up with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) to develop a pressurized vehicle capable of carrying astronauts on the lunar surface without the need for space suits.

It could ultimately be used to explore upwards of 10,000 kilometers (6,210 miles) of the moon’s landscape. JAXA is aiming to launch the system in 2029.

TOYOTA'S LUNAR ROVER: THE SPECES

Toyota has revealed the autonomous rover it could soon send to the moon.

The vehicle will run on solar power and Toyota's fuel cell technology.

Dimensions : 6.0 meters long, 5.2m wide, 3.8 m tall - or about the size of two microbuses, Toyota says

Living space: 13 cubic meters, with space for two people (or four in an emergency)

JAXA and Toyota are aiming to launch the rover in 2029, with human missions to follow in the 2030s.

‘Manned rovers with pressurized cabins are an element that will play an important role in full-fledged exploration and use of the lunar surface,’ JAXA President Hiroshi Yamakawa said on Tuesday.

A pressurized cabin will allow the rover to transport astronauts across greater distances on the surface of the moon.

Toyota’s concept vehicle, revealed in a new video and series of images today, will be designed to hold two astronauts and runs on solar power and fuel cell technology.

The Japanese space agency is planning to launch human exploration missions in the 2030s.

But first, it will need the technology to support them.
