WVRTC Completes Quarterly Status Review

On February 14th, WVRTC hosted a status review  which was highlighted by live demonstrations from  WVRTC and  Johns Hopkins University.  Attending the event were representatives from NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and Alliant TechSystems (ATK).   A distinguished guest was former Astronaut Scott Altman.

The demonstrations showcased  the latest advancements in machine vision autonomous capture algorithms and the robotic compliance modes for simulated contact dynamics.   Johns Hopkins University demonstrated remote tele-operation technology by remotely cutting multi-layer insulation which is used on existing satellites.   In addition, WVU faculty and students gave presentations on the latest  “smart tool” sensor technology which included tactile sensors, chemical sensors,  and high-precision vision sensors to be implemented on future space servicing tools.
