Robonaut 2

Oceaneering Space Systems is playing a key role in the development of the next generation of robots for use in the aerospace, undersea, military and automotive industries. The Robonaut 2 is a dexterous anthropomorphic (human-like) robot which takes robots to the next level – faster, more dexterous, and more technologically advanced. This new generation is able to use robotic hands to perform work beyond the scope of previous humanoid robots.

Oceaneering Space Systems engineers have incorporated leading edge control, sensor, and vision technologies and continue to provide mechanical, electrical, electronic, and software support for the project at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.

Many systems and situations that require servicing in harsh environments, such as satellites in space, offshore oil & gas platforms, and even explosive ordnance in the battlefield, were never designed to be serviced by another machine. An anthropomorphic robot mimics human physiology, and is able to use tools designed for humans to perform safe and complex operations in very dangerous environments.
