1. A moving body comprising:
an external world information acquisition device, wherein:
the moving body is autonomously movable based on external world information acquired by the external world information acquisition device;
the external world information acquisition device is arranged on an inner side of the moving body closer than an outer shell member of the moving body;
the external world information acquisition device is formed with an external world information acquisition surface configured to acquire the external world information on a surface facing an outer side of the moving body, the external world information acquisition surface having a planar shape;
the outer shell member has an opening portion formed at a position where the opening portion overlaps at least a part of the external world information acquisition surface as viewed from the outer side of the moving body;
the moving body includes a cover member which is provided between the external world information acquisition device and the opening portion;
the external world information acquisition surface acquires the external world information via the cover member; and
the cover member has a flat plate shape, and is arranged to face the external world information acquisition surface, and to be inclined in an upper-lower direction and a left-right direction of the moving body with respect to the external world information acquisition surface.
