AbstractThis paper presents the main results of an analysis of the activities of current low-earth orbit space robots. The analysis is presented in terms of the system, task, user interface, operator and training levels. The goal of this analysis is to find ways to improve the overall performance of these complex human-machine systems. The main results of this study are that the control interface, as well as the visualization and monitoring aspects of current low-earth space robot operations could be improved by using approaches such as direct manipulation interfaces, computer vision and virtual environment technologies.
