New German ROKVISS robot experiment on the ISS


20 December 2004
The aim of the German ROKVISS (RObotic Components Verification on the ISS) experiment is to test highly integrated, modular robot components under the conditions experienced in space. The experiment has been developed by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in the Oberpfaffenhofen-based Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics. At the same time, the experiment also serves to demonstrate various new control procedures in both automatic and so-called telepresence mode. The experimental flight unit will be installed on the International Space Station (ISS) in January 2005 following the launch of a Russian spaceship called Progress in December 2004. The experiment will be run on the station for about one year.
