The Human-Robotic Systems project focuses on development, testing and evaluation of robot systems that help humans operate more effectively in space. Key technologies include human-robot interaction, robotic assistance, and surface mobility components.
National Robotics Initiative
The National Robotics Initiative (NRI) is a cross-governmental agency, joint solicitation that supports a national initiative to accelerate the development of next-generation robots in the U.S. Participating government agencies provide funds for competitive grants to U.S. universities and research labs—to conduct robotics research and development—with the goal of bringing robotics capability back to the U.S., keeping the country competitive in robotics. During 2017, 12 grants are active within NASA’s NRI portfolio, covering a wide variety of applications, including robotic walking and foot/soil interaction, exoskeletons, machine learning and planning for humanoid robots, long/thin tendril-like robots for inspection, robotic motors/sensing and multiple rover planning under multiple constraints.
