Automation and Robotics characteristics

Full text not available from this repository.


The main characteristics of Automation and Robotics (A & R) are worked out in order to give the potential users within the Columbus Programme informations of the A & R capabilities and to reveal their benefits. The study first treats the terrestrial applications and tries to categorize the different applications and the degrees of autonomy. In what follows then are the technological and application aspects of A & R in space, the operational support equipment, and the desired applications of A & R in future missions. Therefore, the presently planned systems are investigated, and the use of and the lessons learnt from automated systems in past missions (Spacelab, D1) are analyzed. Finally, this study may not be seen as a reference book that deals with every question concerning A & R. Rather, it is intended to give an insight to what extent automation and robotics today is capable to support scientific research in space. Moreover, this study aims at taking away reservations or even fears from the potential Columbus users about the A & R use.
