Abstract : This paper describes a program currently underway to develop telepresence systems for the support of space missions such as satellite maintenance and repair. A force-reflecting, dexterous manipulator system is emphasized as the basis for the development of integrated telepresence systems. Alternate controllers, control implementations, modified end effectors, and candidate vision systems will be evaluated to resolve human-machine design issues. (Author)
