Space robot startups Gitai and JAXA are completing the world’s first robot demonstration in space by a private company. JAXA’s new agreement under the j-sparc initiative aims to demonstrate the potential of robots to automatically process specific tasks on the international space station (ISS). < / P > < p > robotics is changing many aspects of our lives in many fields, especially in space exploration and development. Ironically, since the first Vostok mission was launched in 1961, great progress has been made in manned spaceflight, which shows that not only is it challenging and expensive to support astronauts in orbit, but also many missions, such as microgravity experiments, where human intervention is not the best choice. < / P > < p > these tasks often require complex, precise and subtle movements, so they require highly specialized and expensive customized instruments or robots. The Gitai / JAXA protocol will be dedicated to the study of the methods for robots to handle maintenance, scientific experiments and other specific tasks on the international space station. < p > < p > at present, Gitai is carrying out autonomous control and automation in the ground simulation module of the Japanese experimental module & quot; Kibo & quot. In fiscal year 2021, a robotic arm will be used in the international space station’s bishop airlock to demonstrate its ability to perform various tasks, including operating switches, plugging cables and assembling panels. The ultimate goal is to develop a robotic system not only for the international space station, but also for NASA’s gateway deep space outpost, Artemis program, and other government and private missions. In addition, the technology can also be used in telemedicine, disaster relief and other earth related missions. In this way, robots can not only assist astronauts, but also help promote private sector participation in space. Kawasaki Kawasaki, director of the general management department of the manned space technology administration of the Japan Aerospace Research and Development Agency (JAXA), said that in order to accelerate the process, Kimbo was included; With the development of low earth orbit (LEO) activities including missions, Japan Aerospace Research and Development Agency (JAXA) has actively invited Japanese research institutions and private enterprises in various fields to jointly create, promote and develop future space utilization. &If this initiative gives birth to the realization of robots that can assist astronauts to work on the Kibo, the result will not only improve the astronauts’ work efficiency, but also may be a variety of sophisticated research and expansion of space utilization. At the same time, advanced technology acquired in the process of space development often leads to innovation on the ground. I hope that this project will create new possibilities for space activities. The technology generated from this project, together with JAXA’s manned space technology and other research and development achievements, will be widely used in the private sector’s space commercialization, helping to expand the scientific knowledge base and create new industries.
