It’s been to the International Space Station. Now it’s coming to you.

NASA’s Johnson Space Center is offering for license the 40+ state-of-the-art technologies in its Robonaut 2. The highly dexterous humanoid robot includes innovations that offer benefits for medicine, manufacturing, logistics and distribution, hazardous environments work, and more. The suite of patented and patent-pending inventions includes:

  • Dexterous/Tendon hands
  • Compliant limbs
  • Integrated sensors
  • Redundant safety systems
  • Machine vision cameras
  • Image recognition systems
  • Control algorithms
  • And much more

A NASA Tech Briefs webinar with valuable information about these exceptional technologies and the licensing process is set for this Thursday, June 20th at 2:00pm EDT and is also available as a recording. You can watch the “Bringing Space Robotics to Earth Applications” webinar/recording for free.

The webinar will feature Dr. Ron Diftler, who served as the Robonaut project lead engineer, and former astronaut David Leestma, who is the manager of NASA Johnson’s Technology Transfer and Commercialization Office.

I recently had the pleasure of discussing the upcoming webinar with Dave Leestma in an interview with North Carolina Network News. Fuentek is working with NASA Johnson’s Technology Transfer and Commercialization Office to develop and implement a commercialization strategy to find the best partners and potential licensees to leverage the Robonaut 2 technologies for new commercial applications on Earth.

It’s an exciting project, and we are honored to be helping NASA bring these new technologies to market quickly and efficiently. I hope you’ll attend this Thursday’s webinar to learn more.
