Evolution of the NASA/DARPA robonaut control system

  title={Evolution of the NASA/DARPA robonaut control system},
  author={Myron A. Diftler and Robert Platt and C. J. Culbert and Robert O. Ambrose and William Bluethmann},
The NASA/DARPA Robonaut system is evolving from a purely teleoperator controlled anthropomorphic robot towards a humanoid system with multiple control pathways. Robonaut is a human scale robot designed to approach the dexterity of a space suited astronaut. Under teleoperator control, Robonaut has been able to perform many high payoff tasks indicating that it could significantly reduce the maintenance workload for human’s working in space. Throughout its development, Robonaut has been augmented… CONTINUE READING
