LWR Satellite Simulator
To investigate manipulation of large objects in 0g with the use of telerobotics, a dedicated set of control algorithms for the LWR robot was developed. This allows the robot to behave as if it were a 1 ton object floating in a 0g environment or as if it were an orbiting satellite. By attaching a task-board that represents a surface on the simulated satellite to the LWR and using an additional external robotic arm, teleoperation tasks in 0g can effectively by performed and control technologies can be researched. A background projection shows how the satellite at full scale would look.
