  1. The Robonaut Josh Kuhn

  2. What is Robonaut? • A dexterous, humanoid robot • Developed at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) with support from GM • Designed to work side-by-side with humans • 4 current Robonauts

  3. Equipment-Robotnaut 2 Specs • Weight:150 kg • 350+ sensors • 4 cameras (stereo vision) + infrared camera for depth perception • 38 PowerPCprocessors • Height: 1.01 m (waist to head) • Shoulder width: 0.78 m • Modular

  4. Equipment-Robotnaut 2 Specs • Dexterous fingers: grasping force of 2.3 kg • Arm reach of 0.81 m • Arms can hold 20 lbs • Performs autonomous tasks and can be controlled remotely by humans • Made of primarily aluminum and some steel

  5. Dexterity • Can use same tools as astronauts • Series elastic joint technology • Extended finger and thumb travel • Miniaturized 6-axis load cells • Redundant force sensing • Ultra-high speed joint controllers

  6. Application • Interacts and assists astronauts • Performs simple, repetitive, and dangerous tasks

  7. Johnson Space Center • Developed by the Robotic Systems Technology Branch • Other projects: • Space Exploration Vehicle (SEV) • Spider • X1 – Exoskeleton • Centaur 1 & 2

  8. Mobility • Centaur 1 & 2 • Rovers created to carry Robonaut and other payloads • “Space legs” • Segwey • ISS roboticarm • Future lower bodies for Robonautinclude zero-gravity climbing legs for EVAs

  9. Centaur 2 • Centaur 2’s unique characteristics • Force controlled suspension • Thermal/dust isolation • Crab steering • Body articulation • In-hub wheel actuation

  10. Movie

  11. Robonaut in Space! • Robonaut 2 launched up to the ISS on February 24th, 2011, fulfilling a 15 year dream to put a humanoid robot into space.

  12. Limitations/Costs • $2.5 million • Limited mobility • Limited weight bearing capacity • Limited autonomous ability

  13. Conclusion • First Humanoid Robot in space • Additional phases for added mobility initiated • Modular parts to be sent to ISS • One of the most dexterous robots of its kind • Can do things humans cannot (range of motion, precision, repeatability)
