Putting the Puli rover to the test

The team is working hard on our first test rover, the not-so-catchy named Iteration 2, to mature the mechanical, electrical and software design. After a few indoor tests and public appearances – including the “Brigde of the Future” and “Researchers' Night” events –, the rover was delivered to the former bauxite mine at Gánt. The site now serves as a museum and a geological park, and was used in the Hunveyor educational space probe experiments as an analogue to Mars, so it was a good candidate for field tests. For the first test run, we picked a hardpan covered with gravel and some sand.

Help get new eyes for the Puli

Puli_AugeTeam Puli Space launches a fundraising campaign for getting the remaining  special cameras for the shiny new I2 rover. Targeted at our german speaking fans, every cent helps, so get on over to the fundraising page, and help us make this happen:


Development of our new I2 rover is in full swing. Our engineers and software developers are working round the clock to finish the current design, as challenging field tests are scheduled to take place in October, and early next year I2 even has to tackle the Moroccan desert. The project is proceeding as planned, except for one thing: the eyes. The team needs your help to obtain several more special cameras with which the rover will analyze its surroundings and plan its own route. We have started a fundraising campaign aimed at the German speaking audience to collect the required 3 000 USD, so if you think our mission is worth it, then now is the time to donate. Every cent helps! Follow the link above for more details.
