    Robonaut Legs In Motion

    Published on Jan 9, 2014

    NASA engineers are developing climbing legs for the International Space Station's robotic crew member Robonaut 2 (R2), marking another milestone in space humanoid robotics.

    The legless R2, currently attached to a support post, is undergoing experimental trials with astronauts aboard the orbiting laboratory. Since its arrival at the station in February 2011, R2 has performed a series of tasks to demonstrate its functionality in microgravity.

    These new legs, funded by NASA's Human Exploration and Operations and Space Technology mission directorates, will provide R2 the mobility it needs to help with regular and repetitive tasks inside and outside the space station. The goal is to free up the crew for more critical work, including scientific research.

    Robonaut Supports Telemedicine Advances

    Published on Jan 15, 2014

    NASA is always investigating new uses for one of the world's most advanced humanoid robots, Robonaut 2 (R2.) Working with Dr. Zsolt Garami from Houston Methodist Research Institute, R2 was put through the paces to prove its use as a device enabling telemedicine, or the use of electronic communications to conduct medical procedures. After some quick training, an R2 teleoperator was able to guide the robot and perform an ultrasound scan on a medical mannequin. Humans at the controls are able to perform the task correctly and efficiently by using R2's dexterity to apply the appropriate level of force and can track their progress using R2's vision system. The teleoperated R2 also experimented using a syringe as part of a procedure further demonstrating the robot's capabilities for telemedicine. This demonstration of robotic capabilities could one day result in the ability for physicians to conduct complex medical procedures on humans in remote locations, whether on the Earth's surface or even in low Earth orbit.

    Robonaut 2 Demonstration at Kennedy Space Center

    Uploaded on Feb 18, 2012

    Deputy Project Manager Nicholas Radford from the NASA Johnson Space Center demonstrates Robonaut 2 at the Kennedy Space Center in October 2010. The demonstration took place ahead of the first aborted launch of STS 133 which eventually delivered an identical humanoid robot to the International space station. Robonaut 2 was developed by engineers from General Motors and NASA beginning in 2007.

    May 3, 2011

    A Robonaut (R2B) successfully launched up to the International Space Station on February 24th. R2 is the first humanoid robot in space. R2, now unpacked, will be initially operated inside the Destiny laboratory for operational testing, but over time, both its territory and its applications could expand. There are no plans to return R2 to Earth.
