At the DARPA 2015 Tech Expo Kris Verdeyen Chief Engineer on the Valkyrie Project at NASA gives us a glimpse into the future of space and ground biased robotic astronauts.
“NASA Johnson Space Center is developing a next-generation humanoid robot and control paradigm capable of performing dynamic, dexterous and perception-intensive tasks in a variety of scenarios. NASA JSC’s development approach will apply successful practices that have been used to develop multiple generations of Robonaut and related technologies in collaboration with academic, commercial and other government partners.”
