its work.


His idea is to use more than one Tegra

system to make a rover with autonomy of movement. The Tesla Lunar Rover and

Tesla Surveyor are what the devices are called. The idea would be for
an
autonomous Lander, with several rovers packed in, to be launched from
the
orbiter to the moon.

“The Tesla Surveyor is a spherical
rover,
designed as a virtual excursion vehicle. Equipped with twin high
definition
video cameras for stereoscopic vision, the Tesla Surveyor will
take viewers on
a trip across the surface of the moon,” says team
Synergy Moon.
