Call for Papers

ICASR 2020 : International Conference on Advances in Space Robotics is the premier interdisciplinary platform for the presentation of new advances and research results in the fields of Advances in Space Robotics. The conference will bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and scholars in the domain of interest from around the world. Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:
  • Space robotics
  • Advances in space robotics
  • Current problems and challenges in space robotics
  • Space robotics and applications
  • Orbit robotic path planning and control
  • Operational modes of robots in microgravity
  • Methods and hardware for robotic capture of non-cooperative targets
  • Computer vision for pose estimation and inspection
  • Interaction of the robotic control with the GNC of the spacecraft
  • Hardware-in-the-loop facilities for testing space robotics
  • Design of distributed hardware and software for heterogeneous robotic systems, robot operating systems, reconfigurable robot teams
  • Tele-operation, tele-presence and latency handling in space robotics
  • Artificial intelligence, learning, and autonomy concepts for space robotics
  • Microgravity and planetary robotics
  • Manipulation and mobility
  • Electromechanical design and control
  • Microgravity locomotion
  • Vision for inspection and assembly, including compensation for stark lighting, glare, glint, and deep shadows
  • Command and control interfaces, including teleoperated modes
  • Power sources and consumable recharging techniques
  • Radiation hardening and effects on processing throughput
  • Thermal considerations in space robot design
  • Sensing and perception for planetary exploration, including terrain-relative precision position estimation
  • Above-surface, surface, and sub-surface planetary mobility, possibly from novel vehicle design concepts
  • Command and control with limited bandwidth, often precluding teleoperation and requiring autonomous surface operations, with natural terrain navigation and manipulation
  • Planetary rovers systems engineering
  • Testing and qualification, including field tests on earth and mars
  • Human-robot system design and development
