YEKATERINBURG, March 20 (Itar-Tass) —— Magnitogorsk designers are working on the SAR-400 android for helping astronauts on spacewalks, a source at the Chelyabinsk regional government told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“The android will assist Russian astronauts. It may examine the spaceship exterior for possible cracks and adjust equipment. The robot may be used inside a spaceship, as well,” the source said.
Both astronauts and the mission control center may operate the android, Android Technology Research and Production Company Technical Director Vladislav Sychkov said. “The operator needs to wear a vest and gloves with sensors. SAR-400 will repeat movements of the operator and transmit video, audio and even tactile data,” he said.
