D.S.I Surveyor Vehicle by AdamBurn D.S.I Surveyor Vehicle by AdamBurn
The third image in my own series of Lunar mining is this fun looking thing, the Surveyor Vehicle is one of the smallest vehicles used by the mining team and is considered a general purpose vehicle but it also has one very important task, it is tasked with moving ahead of the main mining fleet and surveying the areas to make sure the giant harvester and H3 transports are not met by impassible terrain. These vehicles also double as general maintenance units outfitted with a robotic arm with multiple attachments and an assortment of tools and replacement equipment they can conduct repairs on drones, communication arrays, and even minor repairs on the larger transports.

With a top speed of 60 mph and advanced multi direction suspension they are often used by the mining staff during down time taking them out for joy rides.

Here are the other images in the series.

reminds me of the GDI surveyor from Command & Conquer Tiberium Wars. Man, you really should work for EA Games.

the ONLY reason I don't like this one concept out of the three is the apparent high centre of mass, which could more than likely lead to instability on such a low gravity planet

but with that being said, I still adore all the DSi stuff :3

You make a good point, I made the wheels quite spaced out though so it gives it a larger surface area but maybe it could do with being lowered a bit :ahoy:

or atleast apply a bit of monster truck physics and get that engine as low as possible ;D

Looks very fast moving, and I imagine it would move even faster with the moon's lower gravity!

There is one thing that disturbs me on this vehicle: Its arm seems very prone to mechanical failure from being clogged up with regolith.

:iconadamburn:
AdamBurn Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I agree maybe adding some kind of canvas covering over the main parts would of helped.

:iconhelge129:
Helge129 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah. Althought I heard electrostatic fields can repel regolith quite effectively.

:iconadamburn:
AdamBurn Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah my idea for the larger vehicles is a polarising plating that prevents the stuff fro sticking to it and actively repels it. maybe something similar could fit on this thing.

any idea on what's gonna use the power from the fusion reactor the H3 is being used in?
Reply
:iconadamburn:
AdamBurn Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Well the stuff is sent back to Earth for use in the Fusion plants there but they just power cities and everything else, once it was perfected it made coal, oil, gas, and nuclear power redundant
