Scientists of IIT-Kanpur developed software for Chandrayaan-2

Scientists at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT-K) have developed mobility and production planning software for Chandrayan-2, which will help the rover to move and guide the path on the lunar surface. It will also save energy and time to reach the target area.

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) will launch the second mission to the moon - Chandra Ran-2 on July 15. The mission is expected to reach the moon by September 6-7, 2019.

Prof. Ashish Datta of the Mechanical Engineering Department and Professor KS Venkatesh of Electrical Engineering, who developed the software, said that the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has approved the planning and creation of map creation software by them.

They say rover lunar software has been developed and designed in the country for the first time. "It's been a long time. This makes the country able to find places among those who have lunar software techniques," they said.

Professor Datta, who works on micro-sensor intelligent control systems and bio-robots, said it took a year to develop software using algorithmic methods.

Land Rover equipped with software developed by IIT-K will track water and other mineral wealth on the lunar surface. Rover will send relevant pictures to the laboratory for further research and examination.

This software works with a 20 watt solar battery and allows the rover to penetrate the lunar surface, trace the water and other chemicals inside. They claim that the experiment is fifteen times to track chemicals and Water can be done
