Detailed Description

502 pgs, 1994, AIAA
ISBN 978-1563470950

This volume is intended to provide a unified source that deals with some of the principal technical issues associated with space robotics and the justification, design, and operation of existing and anticipated space robot systems. It is intended for a broad audience, including engineers, scientists, managers, policy makers, students, and anyone with interests in human-supervised space robots.

The book addresses a range of current topics of interest to both the general technical reader and the specialist. These topics include the human-machine interface, planning, perception, dynamics, control, and space robot system design and applications. Dynamics, control, and human-machine considerations, many of which are unique to the space environment, are discussed in detail.
