This electronic book on CD-ROM provides a comprehensive guide to robotic research, focused on the work of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Navy Space and Naval Warfare Systems (SPAWAR) division. JPL is NASA's lead center for creating robotic spacecraft and rovers, building smart machines that can perform complicated tasks millions of miles from home. A prime example of JPL expertise: Spirit and Opportunity, the twin Mars Rovers which began their exploration of Mars early in 2004. JPL technology highlighted here includes:
Cryobot (A cryobot is a vehicle which moves through ice by melting the ice wall directly in front of it taking measurements of the encountered environment, and sending the collected data or images to the surface of the ice.) ROBOT WORK CREW (Site construction operations by autonomous robotic systems are essential for a sustained robotic presence and human habitation on Mars. JPL has developed a software and hardware framework for cooperating multiple robots performing such tightly coordinated tasks.) CLARAty (This task is developing and implementing a comprehensive control architecture for multiple, disparate, interacting, planetary rovers. The control of these systems will utilize the architecture to implement artificial intelligence techniques for autonomous sequence planning, error handling, and recovery during surface operations in an unknown terrain.) Urbie (Tactical Mobile Robot. Urbie's initial purpose is mobile military reconnaissance in city terrain but many of its features will also make it useful to police, emergency, and rescue personnel. The robot is rugged and well-suited for hostile environments.
The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center in San Diego has been involved in various aspects of robotics since the early 1960s. The Advanced Systems Division develops land and air robots, while the Ocean Systems Division works on underwater robots.
There are twelve video clips in mov, mpeg, and ram formats showing JPL robots at work.
This CD-ROM has over 12,000 pages reproduced using Adobe Acrobat PDF software - allowing direct viewing on Windows and Macintosh systems, and Reader software is included.
