OPDATERING: Astrobee udfordrings serien er slut. Stort tillykke til alle der deltog! Hold dig opdateret med kommende NASA konkurrencer på Freelaner.

Astrobee Udfordringsserie

NASA designer en næste generations robot assistent for at hjælpe astronauter på den internationale rumstation (ISS). Assistenten vil flyve rundt inde i ISS, ovenpå et væg-monteret hanhold ("Gelænder"), og orientere et kamera, som anvist. NASA har allerede designet den gratis flyver del, ved navn Astrobee, og har kigget på freelancer samfundet efter gode løsninger til en tilknytning og en orienterings arm.

Over de næste måneder vil ~$25.000 blive udloddet, fordelt over mere end et dusin konkurrencer, med individuelle præmier rangerende fra $250 til $5000. Hver vil efterspørge løsninger på en bestemt (nogle gange overlappende) del af tilslutningsarmen. Hver konkurrence kan løses isoleret set, men du kan vælge at deltage i så mange konkurrencer som du ønsker. Vinderløsninger vil måske blive inkorporeret i robotarmdesignet og anvendt med Astrobee over de næste mange år.

APPLICATIONS

Live updates and tracking in ISS

Getting live updates and tracking your time is mission critical aboard the International Space Station. Our freelancers developed smartwatch concepts and applications for Astronauts to keep the ISS operational at all times.

ROBONAUT

Keeping ISS astronauts safe

Meet Robonaut R2, the humanoid robot who takes on the most dangerous tasks in space. For these challenges freelancers created 3D models of tools R2 uses to keep the ISS astronauts safe.

ROBOTIC ARM

NASA selected 30 freelancers to participate in the Astrobee Robotic Arm Challenge Series

NASA used 30 freelancers to suggest designs for Astrobee's robotic arm. Freelancers helped inform the design of every component, from subsystems to electronics.

Branding

Designing for NASA programs

Inside of NASA there are many initiatives and programs to improve space exploration and the lives of those involved. To help further this goal, our freelancers improved the branding on logos, trophies and banners used at NASA.
