MOONWALK: evaluation of astronaut - robot interaction in earth analogue simulations

The project MOONWALK was conducted from 2012 to 2016 and concluded with two earth-analogue simulations in 2016: a) at a strip mine in Rio Tinto, Spain, representing a Mars analogue environment and b) at sea floor level in the coastal area of Marseille, France, representing a Moon analogue environment.

In the project's conduction, special attention was paid to the possibilities, effectiveness and challenges of astronaut - robot interaction in the two different simulated space environments.


The talk will provide an overview of the conducted activities, the experiences gathered and the possible conclusions for future projects regarding man-machine interaction in space environments.
