Bringing Space Robotics to Earth Applications

Researchers at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC), in collaboration with General Motors, have designed a state-of-the-art, highly dexterous, humanoid robot: Robonaut 2 (R2). R2 is made up of multiple component technologies and systems – dexterous hands, compliant limbs, integrated sensors, redundant safety systems, machine vision cameras, and much more. R2’s nearly 45 patented and patent-pending technologies have the potential to be game-changers in multiple industries, including logistics and distribution, medical and industrial robotics, and beyond. Ron Diftler, JSC’s Robonaut Project Manager, will provide an overview of this exceptional suite of technologies now available for licensing.
