LXer: Linux-based Robonaut 2 preps for active ISS duty

Published at LXer:

NASA’s Linux-based “Robonaut 2? is undergoing extensive testing on the International Space Station (ISS), and will soon be put to work. The humanoid Robonaut 2 will soon receive a major upgrade that will provide legs and an expanded battery pack, enabling it to perform more duties, including space walks. Robonaut 2 arrived at the ISS in Feb. 2011, billed as the first dexterous humanoid robot in space, but it has yet to see much action. Recently, however, the bot has been undergoing extensive testing of its motor controls and vision system.
