Transcript of Exploratory Robots

David Dawson and Max Matejka Exploratory Robots in Space Explores many places such as:
Other planets
Environments too dangerous for humans to inhabit What does it do? varying degrees of freedom. Functions of the Curiosity Rover Rovers have a variety of sensors. They have multiple cameras along with things such as:
Sensors that detects movement and shape Sensors Exploratory robots in space are used to explore other planets and moons. They can:
Collect Samples
Take videos and pictures
The setting of the area that they explore
Do basic tasks such as repairs The Types of Space Robots Helper Robots:
These robots will work in places such as space stations and satellites
They can assist in basic tasks. There are many tasks they can perform. Rovers and Explorers Rovers
can be used to explore other planets and moons. As of now, they can:
pick up samples
take pictures and videos
navigate the surface of planets. What Are These Robots Used For? Degrees of Freedom multiple types of exploratory robots
different degrees of freedom. Think: What could these robots do in space? Brainstorm:Try to think of a few different types of space robots. A helper robot may have arms that have the same degrees of freedom but a rover may have multiple arms, but few degrees of freedom on each arm. Exploratory Robots
Often referred to as deep space probes
Used to explore deep space
Able to take pictures of distant space and send them back to control rooms
Can embark on trips too long or dangerous for humans to go on Many end effectors.
Some that are on the Curiosity Rover are:
Shovel End Effectors Helper Robots may have a variety of end effectors. Robo 2 has hands which it uses to grasp and move things. Imagine: Imagine you would asked to design a rover. How many legs would it have? How would it move? Explain why you would design your rover in this way. A helper robot will have sensors that help it to find things on the ISS. It will use these to move or use things. A deep space probe will have a large amount of sensors and cameras that can transmit signals back to Earth. Pros and Cons Pros:
Eliminate need for people to explore these areas
Provide detailed information about areas they explore
Help us learn more about our galaxy Cons:
Sometimes don't work Impact These robots will send messages ande allow for us to know more about the universe. Careers There are a variety of jobs that are related to explorer robot in space. People build, program, and pilot many of these. The Future In the future these robots may be able to:
Explore other galaxies
Drill deeper into other planets
Learn more about the planets they explore. Works-Cited Works Cited
