Team FREDNET In The News!

Friday, December 28, 2007.

This morning, CNBC featured Fred Bourgeois of Team FREDNET, reporting on one of the newest members of the Google Lunar X Prize challenge. Fred Bourgeois and his team of engineers demonstrated remote control of their prototype rover vehicle. The team gave CNBC reporter Jane Wells the opportunity to control the robot from a laptop in San Jose, CA. The rover itself meanwhile negotiated a simulated lunar landscape in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The brief exhibition proved the feasibility of a remotely controlled vehicle across thousands of miles.
This sampling of upcoming developments demonstrated that Team FREDNET moves with great purpose toward the Lunar X Prize.
