  6. Advanced Modeling Tools for Controlling Complex Assets Across Time Delay

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: X601

    The proposed innovation is a hybrid simulation module to replace the current "Behavioral Sim" in JSC's Predictive Interactive Graphical Interface (PIGI). PIGI helps an operator compensate for lunar-scale time delay, and is part of NASA's "RAPID Workbench". The Behavioral Sim acts as an oracle, taking initial conditions and a sequence of commands and producing traject ...

  8. Building and Executing Rover Plans with Contingent Tasks

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: T102

    During recent robotic field tests, NASA investigated the use of intelligent planetary rovers to improve the productivity of human explorers on planetary surfaces. For these field tests, a remote Science Team built rover plans to collect data that supplements astronaut EVA and a remote Flight Team supervised the execution of these plans. This model of operation requires the Science Team to generate ...

  10. Integration of Notification with 3D Visualization of Rover Operations

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: T102

    Future NASA exploration missions will rely on remote operation of robots. As human explorers move further away from Earth, robotic precursors will scout destinations and robotic assistants will perform tasks to reduce astronaut risk and workload. 3D visualization is a key component of how humans will interact with robots for these missions. When the operator engages a robot using visualization, th ...
