Toyota Japan Space Agency To Develop Moon Rover

Toyota Japan Space Agency To Develop Moon Rover:- Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota)and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) have announced their agreement to consider the possibility of cooperation on international space exploration. As a first step, JAXA and Toyota have reached an agreement to pursue a joint study on a manned, pressure rover and to use fuel cell electric vehicle technologies. Such form of mobility is considered essential for human exploration activities on the moon surface. Even the limited amount of energy that can be reached to the moon, the total lunar-surface rotation of the pressure rover will be more than 10,000 km.

The concept proposal for the pressure rover being studied by JAXA and Toyota is the size of two microbuses. It is 6 meters long, 5.2 meters wide and 3.8 meters long. It will be able to accommodate two people and even four people in case of emergency.

“Our confidence in Toyota’s international space exploration has strengthened.” Managed Rovers with pressure cabins is an element that will play an important role in the full exploration and use of the Moon surface. Through us, the joint study is going forward, we have the excellent technical capabilities of Toyota related to mobility. Want to abuse, and we look forward to accelerating our technical study for the realization of a manned, pressurized rover”, President of JAXA Hiroshi Yamakawa.

This moon rover from Toyota will be ready by 2029. Chandra is one-sixth part of the gravitational earth, whereas in the moon there is a complex area with craters, rocks, and hills. Apart from this, it is in contact with radiation and temperature conditions, which is very rigid compared to the ones present on the Earth, as well as an extremely high vacuum environment. For a comprehensive search of the Moon, a pressurized rover that can travel more than 10,000 km in such an environment is a requirement. Toyota’s ‘Space Mobility’ concept will address all these concerns.

Toyota chairman Akio Toyoda said, “beyond the framework of countries or regions, I believe our industry, which is constantly thinking about the role, should fulfil the same aspirations of international space exploration. In addition, cars are used in all areas of the Earth, and, in some areas, cars play an active role in the form of partners to ensure this. That people come back alive, and I feel that coming back to life is exactly the same thing in this project. I am very happy for this project, thus improving sustainability and driving performance of Toyota vehicles and Expectations are put on our fuel cell environmental technologies. “
