Our robot buddy: sarb-1
Robot buddy Engineer-Carmen
This is sarb-1.
Space Astronaut Robotic Buddy-1. He is made of fiberglass and the parts
that need to be metal are metal. The reason most of the parts are fiberglass
is because it costs a lot of money to put one pound in space. The robot
needs to be lightweight.
it that might or will be metal are:
The camera (its eyes)
The thrusters both side and top
some of them. The robot moves by thruster power. It has thrusters on each
side of it and one the top so that it doesn’t hit the sealing of
the space station. The thrusters are like small fans that move the robot
around. On the top of the robot are three almost microscopic sensors that
tell the robot that it’s going to hit the top of space station.
The sensors have a range of one and a half feet up. When the sensors get
within range of the top of the space station, the robot turns on the top
thruster and moves down.
