Self-assembly systems in space are arguably within the reach of today’s technology based on the research and development of self-reconfigurable robots on earth. This paper presents an approach to self-assembly in space by developing (1) a novel design for intelligent and reconfigurable components; (2) the free-flying “intelligent fiber/rope” “match-maker”(More)
This paper presents an experimental system for assembly in space. A weightless and frictionless environment is approximated using an air-hockey table where robots and structural components can float on the surface. The robots use fan propulsion to dock with components and assemble them together to make 2D structures. This system is designed to implement(More)
