@Duane- I have the same concern. It does not seem to me that landing this robot on the moon could even be done for $20 million.

It seems like just getting anything close to the moon would be a significant enough accomplishment for an X-prize. Adding in orbital capture and landing a vehicle makes me doubt that we'll see this prize getting awarded anytime soon.

From the picture it seems to be a simple design.Are there provisions for this robot not to topple and due to some reason if it topples can it correct itself?

Making the robot autonomous on the moon surface is a challenging job and I think full-time desication is needed! Cudos to the team and wish all success to them! How this robot will be taken to the Moon? Is there a moon mission in 2014 that Google is also sponsoring? And I agree to Rick...Apollo landing area should protected as a "heritage" site.

As "heritage" sites, the Apollo landing areas should be protected from intrusion--or at least highly regulated. The next thing we may see then are souvenir hunting robots. Read more about those concerns here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Lunar_X_Prize

Is that an acronym for how cute the robot is?

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
