Project Title
Wearable Robotics Suit
Design Challenge
The goal of this project is to develop a robot imitation suit (which is worn and operated by a human) to test different scenarios of human-robot interaction. The design will require the robot imitation suit to be believable as an actual robot. This project will be used to test the behavior of the test-subject human, observe how he or she reacts to specifically engineered actions of the human wearing the robot imitation suit, and train astronauts to work with robots for future systems.
