Teleoperation and Robotics in Space

University Of Notre Dame S. Skaar

Increasingly, space teleoperators and robots (space telerobots) will take the place of astronauts in planetary and lunar scientific missions to reduce cost and risk. Terrestrial robots have much in common with space robots, but there are important physical differences arising from weightlessness, vacuum, the thermal environment, and the need to minimize mass. Because the technology for building intelligent space robots does not yet exist, they must be supervised by human operators.
