Robotics Workshop

Short course by ESA · Free · Current

Planetary exploration is a fascinating sector that ESA is investing heavily in, with projects including the pioneering Rosetta mission to a comet, the ambitious Artemis mission to the Moon (constructing the European Service Module), and the cutting-edge Rosalind Franklin rover destined for Mars. The present and future missions of Mars exploration are the inspiration behind the Robotics Workshop. Over four days, participating students will delve into the design and operation of a planetary exploration robotic vehicle based on the European rover that will be sent to investigate the surface of the red planet. Particular attention will be given to software, starting with installing basic components of Linux and ROS (Robot Operating System). Students will then study the locomotion system, developing algorithms that will allow the robot to move. Finally, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence will be utilised to grant the capability of recognising specific objects on the surface of Mars.

Sustainability in Space? Could Safety Cases Help

Seminar by SaRS · Free · Past

The growth of satellites in orbit has been matched by a growth in orbital debris. With the recent increase in mega constellations, the importance of taking a sustainable approach to space operations is increasingly a priority. Since the earliest days of space activity, international agreements such as the Outer Space Treaty, national laws and licensing, and of course standards and guidance have all played a part in ensuring that a balanced approach is taken to space operations. But what else can be learnt from other sectors ? This talk will explore what aspects of the ground based regulatory environment in the UK could be usefully applied to a hypothetical Safety Case in Space approach. Considering a generic low earth orbit mid-sized satellite, the pros and cons of a potential safety case informed approach will be explored for a full lifecycle in orbit operation, from deployment through to de-orbiting.
