Workshop on Space Robotics

November 19, 2020

On December 15 (Tuesday, 16:00-19:00) will take place the online workshop on space robotics with the participation of GMV, the University of Cranfield and HURO. In the near future, several robotic platforms will be developed for exploration, construction, and maintenance in space environments. Orbital robotic manipulation or rendezvous, planetary rovers, robotics activities at satellites and spacecrafts are only a few examples of the use of robotics in space. This workshop aims to highlight new developments in the field of space robots with the participation of the following seminars:

  • Fernando Gandía Abellán. Head of Robotics Section / Space Segment and Robotics - GMV. “Space robotic projects of GMV”.

  • Leonard Felicetti. Lecturer in Space Engineering - Centre for Autonomous and Cyberphysical Systems. University of Cranfield. “New trends and research in robotic spacecrafts”.

  • Jorge Pomares. Professor - HURO, “Space robotics and humanoid robots in space”.
