Human Robotic Systems

The Human Robotic Systems (HRS) project, led by JSC, is developing robotic technologies to assist humans in space exploration, from remote robotic vehicles and manipulators, to remote surrogates, to astronaut assistants. The approach is to develop and test component technologies and integrate them into system prototypes. In FY13 GRC manufactured a set of second generation spring tires that was integrated into testing on JSC’s Centaur 2 mobile platform. FY14 will focus on continued maturation of spring tire technologies, a multi-center hardware integration and demonstration of excavation technologies, and assessment of potential Mars rover mobility testing.
