Casting Robotic End-Effectors to Reach Far Objects in Space and Planetary Missions

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review

Abstract

In this paper we present work aimed at developing a compact robotic device able to reach objects at far distance.The work is based on the idea of casting manipulation, and that allows to deploy an end-effector at large distances from the robot’s base by throwing (casting) it and controlling its ballistic flightusing forces transmitted through a light tether connected to the end-effector itself.
