Orbital Robotics: EVA

Orbital Robotics: EVA & Human Interface

So far, being a vision in science fiction literature, the human arm and hand extensions into non-reachable or dangerous environments, such as space, is now a focal point to be realized within the key topic Telepresence and Virtual Reality.

Research topics:

  • multimodal telepresence
  • development of haptic man-machine interfaces
  • predictive simulation of robotic space missions
  • transfer of physical and cognitive skills from human to robot
