ABSTRACT:

Space robots are increasingly being featured in space missions beyond the space station servicing and sampling the surface of Mars. Current and future applications include commercial satellite servicing, assembly and construction, orbital debris removal, planetary and telerobotic exploration, and asteroid sample retrieval. While software-only simulation of these on-orbit missions is a vital tool in terms of mission planning, it is difficult to accurately replicate the physical contact between space robot and its environment. This is required to guide certain critical design requirements and is especially challenging in either unknown or highly dynamic variable environments (e.g. between free-floating satellites). In particular for orbital robotics, the simulation of multi-body contact dynamics within a micro-gravity environment still remains an elusive task on Earth. The purpose of this full-day workshop is to bring together the top researchers in space robotics and associated technologies to review the state of the art in ground-based platforms for verification and validation of space robotic missions and to exchange the latest findings.
