Abstract
An overview of the development of a robot walker for use on the NASA Space Station is presented. The robot is designed to perform such tasks as inspection, transport of parts, and simple manipulation. The robot hardware and grippers, the real-time control hardware and software for precise, stable control of the highly flexible, three-dimensional robot, and a gravity compensation system are discussed.
