MOJO-Micro: Multi-Orthogonal Jaunting rObot in Microgravity

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

MOJO-Micro: Multi-Orthogonal Jaunting rObot in Microgravity
We propose a space technology demonstration of microgravity locomotion in periodic frameworks using MOJO: The Multi-Orthogonal Jaunting rObot, a robotic system specifically designed to traverse and inspect a reversibly-assembled digital cellular solid We will assess the impact that microgravity has on the energy consumption, reliability, and maximum traversal speed of the robot, and explore what specific adaptations can be made to the robot that improve its performance in this environment. The proposed project would contribute to the automated assembly of large space structure, a key milestone in NASA’s roadmap for space technology, enabling lightweight, multifunctional materials whose final size can far exceed the envelope of the launch vehicle in which it was launched.
