Toyota is working with the Japanese space agency to develop a vehicle to explore the surface of the moon and then send people there by 2040.
According to the AP, the car is called the Lunar Cruiser.
“We view space as our once-in-a-century transformation. By going into space, we can develop telecommunications and other technologies that will be useful for human life, ", — said Takao Sato, who leads the Lunar Cruiser project.
Gitai Japan Inc. has developed a robotic arm designed to perform tasks such as inspection and maintenance.
The company's CEO Sho Nakanose said that the task given to the manufacturer for space flight is basically solved. But the very work in space entails high costs and dangers for astronauts, so robots will be needed.
