Abstract


This research explores the performance of the iRobot Create machine for optimizing object relocation in an outer space environment. It is an ultimate goal to have it become a symbol of innovation for robots that are sent into outer space. Functioning as a tool-bot, and an active assistant, this robot aims to assist in small duties and respond to commands. With its arm and color blob recognition capabilities, this robot has the potential to receive a request, register and associate it with existing objects in its line of sight, and maneuver the arm to act accordingly, grabbing the correct object and giving it to a worker or engineer. This poster and presentation explains current progress and implementation of the iRobot Create for this purpose.
