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.

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.
