Robot Being Designed To Perform Tasks On The International Space Station

German Engineers have designed a Robot that may take it’s place with Astronauts on the International Space Station. The idea being that it will perform some of the more basic tasks allowing the Astronauts to concentrate on more difficult and thought provoking tasks. The robot named AILA will need to be taught the tasks and once “she” has learnt these will be able to complete them the same as any Human.

 

Check out the video for the full demonstration – Amazing

 

Once she has learned a new skill, the astronauts can give her an action plan that she will complete in sequential order.

AILA is attached to a six-wheeled platform so that she can move and execute tasks efficiently.

She has two arms with fingers like a human hand because the ISS is built for humans. She is able to slightly rotate her head, arms, and torso.

The German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence is developing the robot alongside the University of Breman. The project is funded by the German Space Agency using federal funds from the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology.

This shows just what can be picked up and learned by Artificial Intelligence and this is only the start of what can be achieved by the hired help!
