The ARTEMIS rover has been built up within eight months for the DLR SpaceBot competition 2013. In that competition the rover had to autonomously collect several objects in an unknown environment. Both staff and students participated in the development and formed the team Artemis.

Due to the requirements of the competition the rover is equipped with powerful sensors and a manipulator arm. It is highly mobile by using a triple bogie suspension and rubber tweels.
