  AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS AND ROBOTICS
 
 Single Cycle Instrument
Single Cycle Instrument Placement
Allowing rapid and reliable inspections and close-up in situ measurements of multiple targets distributed throughout an unstructured and unpredictable worksite-- without continuous operator supervision. This efficient goal-level commanding capability represents an order of magnitude improvement in MER class rover inspection capabilities and requires fewer operators.

 VE Interface
Virtual Environment (VE) Interface for Remote Inspection
A virtual environment interface is being developed to monitor and control a simulated free flying inspection vehicle that is designed to detect damage to an Orbiter's thermal protection system.

 High Speed3D Scanner
High Speed 3D Scanner
A novel 3D optical sensing system with real-time processing has been developed which is capable of scanning a target at very high speeds (greater than 500,000 3D points/second).

 High Resolution Human Performance Modeling for Human-Robotic Teaming
High Resolution Human Performance Modeling for Human-Robotic Teaming
Millisecond-level models of skilled human-performance allow safe, reliable and efficient planning and control of human robotic teaming in activities such as EVA Crew Exploration, Vehicle maintenance, and planetary in situ resource utilization.

 Human-Centered Interfaces for Teleoperations
Human-Centered Interfaces for Teleoperations
To develop safe, reliable, and effective teleoperation interfaces, human factors principles are applied to optimize interface design in support of human-robotic teaming for space exploration.

 Kinesthetic Cueing for Teleoperation
Kinesthetic Cueing for Teleoperation
An operator’s sense of their own hand position may be used to improve their ability to control telerobots when viewing coordinates are not aligned with control coordinates.
