Spacemen And Robots Will Work As A Team (+VIDEO)
SpaceJustin is a space robot designed by scientists from the Robotics and Mechatronics Center at the DLR site in Oberpfaffenhofen. It is planned to utilize the robot for repairing satellites, operating switches or exchanging modules. The robot can be operated remotely; it is possible to feel with your own hands what the robotic hand is touching and to see what the robot’s eyes are seeing. The main aim of the project is to create a new generation of robots for space applications based on powerful telerobotic concepts and man-machine-interfaces.The robots will be operated both by astronauts and by specialists from groundstations.
