Toyota Motor and the Japanese Space Agency have agreed to jointly develop rocks on the moon by the crew.
The car and Japan Aviation Research Agency, or JAXA, announced a statement at a symposium in Tokyo on Tuesday.
Officials from Toyota and JAXA say they aim to create a crewed crew capable of covering more than 10,000 kilometers on the surface of the moon. They plan to use Toyota's technology for hydrogen fuel-cell hydrogen fuel cells for the vehicle.
They also plan to use the expertise of a car mechanic for automatic driving and improving the durability and range of vehicles.
Toyota and JAXA say that as a first step they are considering to develop a rover 6 meters long, 5.2 meters wide and 3.8 meters high with a suitable cabin for two people. They aim to launch the vehicle in space in 2029.
Toyota's vice president, Shigake Terashi, told reporters it was a dream to imagine an investigation developed by his engineers who drove to the moon. He added that they want to make the most of the technology and realize that dream.
JAXA separately participates in the international research mission of the man on the moon scheduled for the first half of the 2030s. Participants in the mission are the US space agency NASA and the European Space Agency.
