Abstract

Space robot assistants are envisaged as semi-autonomous co-workers deployed to lighten the workload of astronauts in cumbersome and dangerous situations. In view of this, this work considers the prospects on the technology requirements for future space robot operations, by presenting a novel mission control concept for close astronaut-robot collaboration. A decentralized approach is proposed, in which an astronaut is put in charge of commanding the robot, and a mission control center on Earth maintains a list of authorized robot actions by applying symbolic, geometric, and context-specific filters. The concept is applied to actual space robot operations within the METERON SUPVIS Justin experiment. In particular, it is shown how the concept is utilized to guide an astronaut aboard the ISS in its mission to survey and maintain a solar panel farm in a simulated Mars environment.
