Dr Eddie Moxey of the University of Surrey recently gave a speech at the IEE seminar on the Changing Face of Robotics. His speech concentrated on the use of robotics in space.
The talk reviewed the past, present and future of the two main strands of space robotics research and development On-Orbit Servicing (OOS) and Planetary Exploration.
Since the deployment of the Canadarm, on the Space Shuttle, OOS has steadily developed from a fascinating research topic into a potentially lucrative business. Recent research projects, such as Robonaut and Eurobot, have concentrated on more the dexterous manipulation of objects, using humanoid sized, multi-arm, robots, for inspection and servicing on the International Space Station and ultimately on medium and large satellites.
