The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Johnson Space Center (JSC) is seeking parties interested in collaborative development and mature technologies required for NASA’s future missions and to enhance life on Earth. JSC is looking to partner on the development of broadly applicable technologies as a means to accelerate technology development and strengthen commercialization of federally-funded research and development.
NASA JSC seeks parties interested in co-developing technology associated with humanoid robots for earth applications such as hazardous environments where humans operate at severe risk and tele-medicine.
The primary technical challenges include humanoid interfaces, mobility and manipulation, structures, artificial vision, object recognition/detection, and power systems.
These humanoid robots and associated technologies can be used in hazardous and remote environments here on earth including applications in oil and gas, fire and rescue, post disaster recovery, and combat operations. An example application is to develop the robot glove for tele-medicine application.
NASA JSC is and has been the leader in space-based humanoid robots for years and seeks to leverage this position to advance humanoid robotics for earth and in-space operations including lunar and planetary operations. These advanced humanoids must operate unaccompanied during periods of unmanned activity. The humanoids must traverse unimproved, natural surfaces with limited communication to an operator, who may be local or remote.
NASA JSC has been the leader in space-based humanoid robots for several years and holds patents on Robonaut 2.
Intellectual Property (IP):
Multiple individual technologies associated with robotics are currently available for co-development and licensing. Visit http://www.nasa.gov/centers/johnson/techtransfer/technology/robonaut2_licensing.html#.UovXQ7ajSIk
This co-development project may produce new IP that could be jointly owned by NASA and the partner or may become the property of the partner.
This announcement is not to be construed as a Request for Proposal and is not a commitment by the government, nor will the government pay for any information provided. Since this is an Announcement, no evaluation letters or results will be issued to the respondents.
