RACOON-Lab
The laboratory set-up simulates the movements of the robot and target satellite in space in order to optimise the human-machine interface.
How can a robot satellite in space recognise, control and grab objects?
And how can Man intervene and control - be telepresent in space, so to speak - complex operations such as repairs to another satellite?
This year norelem is promoting an innovative and practice-oriented project with "lofty goals" - the RACOON Lab at the Technical University of Munich. The team of Andreas Fleischner headed by the department head and former astronaut Prof. Dr. Ulrich Walter researches the control of robotic systems, which maintain, repair or dispose of satellites in outer space. Such tasks are complicated and can not be undertaken by fully autonomous systems.
The human ability to improvise on site can not be replaced. Manned missions such as those used in the repair of the Hubble Telescope are, however, immensely expensive and risky. In Munich an environment is configured in the lab, in which the control of a repair satellite is simulated from Earth and explored.
