Robotics Laboratory

The Space Robotics Laboratory suite consists of the Space Robotics Classroom (STEM 109), the Space Robotics Laboratory (STEM 108), and a research breakout room (STEM 107). The Space Robotics Classroom supports the core lectures and lab courses in the ME, EE, and CE robotics track: Robotics I, Mechatronics, Mechatronics Lab, Robotics II, and Robotics II Lab. This room consists of classroom space along with electronic test benches and a mobile robot test table. The Space Robotics Laboratory primarily serves the robotics capstone sequence, Preliminary Design of Robotic Systems and Detailed Design of Robotic Systems, and also the Robotics II Lab. This room contains tools, fabrication equipment, electronic test equipment, a motion capture system, a host of robotic manipulators, and an air-bearing table for testing planar space robots. The research breakout room is utilized by capstone students as well as faculty and students working on robotics research projects. In addition to supporting the ME, EE, and CE robotics track courses, the Space Robotics Laboratory is also home to the ERAU-Prescott VEX Robotics Team and the Eagle Robotics Club.   

Current faculty research in the laboratory is concerned with re-creating the on-orbit motion of space-robots using force-feedback control of industrial manipulators.
