Mount Etna first, next the Moon #shorts
This concluding part of ESA’s ‘Analog-1’ project took place as part of a larger multi-agency, multi-rover campaign, organised by the @DLR. The Autonomous Robotic Networks to Help Modern Societies, ARCHES, project probed the ability of autonomous robots to collaborate and share data on a networked basis.
ESA’s four-wheeled, two-armed Interact rover was built by the Agency’s Human Robot Interaction Lab and modified for the rugged slopes of the volcano. This robot formed part of a team consisting of two DLR rovers – Lightweight Rover Units 1 and 2 – along with a fixed ‘lunar’ lander supplying WiFi and power to the rovers, plus a drone for surface mapping. The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology contributed the centipede-like Scout crawler, optimised for tough terrain, which could also serve as a relay between Interact and the lander, boosting its effective area of operations.

Wrong content in description? Same description of 4 july video about Manatee Nebula.
If the rover is powered by solar panels, include a broom attachment for the robotic arm, so that it won't face the same fate as NASA InSight 😀
Que fantástico …deve ser tão gratificante projectar a minúcia no robô e as expectativas do que irá encontrar?!! Adoro estas novidades espaciais e os trabalhos que desenvolvem em grupo…
Where's the "really like" button.
Fantastici…allora siete in Sicilia a Catania…complimenti x la missione…👍🌋👌👏
