Abstract
This report documents the preliminary design for a mobile manipulator system to service the Space Shuttle. This document arose from the Mobile Robot Design Course in the Spring of 1991 held at Carnegie Mellon's Robotics Institute. A wide number of issues are addressed including mechanical configuration and design, software and hardware architectures, sensing, power, planning, and a number of design process issues as well. Many comparisons and analyses are presented and much of this work helped formulate decisions and designs in the eventual robot system, and Tessellator.
