|Size:||820 x 1000 x 220 mm (normal posture)|
|Actuation/ Engine:||24 joints for 6 legs + 1 body joint (RoboDrive + HarmonicDrive) 2 Servo motors (Dynamixel) for head control|
Joints: Current measurement, voltage measurement, rotational speed, position (absolute and incremental), temperature; Each foot: 4x pressure for deformation measurement of flexible foot material, 3-axis acceleration measurement, optical encoder for immersion of spring element in lower leg, ADC for 4x strain gauges usable for i.e. bending measurement of optional claws
|features:||Electro-mechanical interface (EMI) for tight connection to Sherpa in the project RIMRES. The interface is controlling energy and data exchange between coupled systems|

CREX (CRater EXplorer) is a six-legged walking robot that is based on the developments in the project SpaceClimber.
CREX acts as a scouting system in the project RIMRES. The robot is intended to explore the inner of deep lunar polar craters in search for water ice or other volatile substances.
Via the electro-mechanical interface on CREX‘ back the robot can be connected to the Sherpa rover for travelling longer distances. Furthermore an expansion of the system‘s capabilities is possible with the EMI: Additional battery modules or scientific instruments can be docked to the interface.
