ARS Technica article DARPA’s latest mission is to use the human-computer interface (HCI) to explore what it calls “alien-hunters” in human spacesuits.
The agency, the nation’s premier space exploration agency, announced the new research project on Thursday at the International Space Station (ISS).
It is the culmination of DARPA efforts to advance artificial intelligence and robotics.
It’s not just the agency that has been doing this research, though.
The International Space Agency (ISS) has been working on developing human-machine interfaces since its inception in the 1970s.
DARPA has been developing these technologies for decades.
In a statement, DARPA says that its “mission will include developing a robust human-like interface that is easy to use and can be easily used in a wide variety of environments.”
While the agency says that it plans to use human-oriented interfaces in spacesuits, the agency is not yet ready to go into specifics about what that interface will look like.
In an interview with Space.com, DARP director David Griggs said the goal of this effort is to develop “a more robust human interface that can be easy to understand and use by anyone.”
Griggs says that this is something that the agency has been trying to do for years.
“It has been a long, long time since we’ve been able to get it right,” he said.
“What I like about human-driven interfaces is they don’t just look good; they’re functional and they have a good understanding of the user’s input.”
For example, the human body, or any device, can communicate with other devices.
This ability allows the human to use a robot arm, for example, to move a piece of metal, such as a drill.
When you’re using a human-led interface, you can use a human arm to do tasks, and you can communicate back to the user what you’re doing with the arm.
“The human body is a powerful interface for communication,” Griggs told Space.
“In some of these environments, you don’t have a physical interface.”
So when you’re in space, it’s important to make sure that you can make use of human-based interfaces.
DARP is also working to develop a robotic arm that can perform various tasks.
DARPs robotic arm has been developed as part of a program called the Robotic Hand and Arm (RHA) to develop robots for various purposes.
The RHA program is funded by DARPA and has a goal of developing robotic hand and arm capabilities that can do tasks like picking up a package, carrying a person, and operating a door.
“We’re really excited about using this new human-inspired interface in spacesuit applications,” said Mike Lutz, the director of DARP’s Human-Computer Interface Directorate, during a presentation at ISS on Thursday.
Lutz also stressed that this research is not just a DARPA effort.
“DARPA has a long history of using human-robot interfaces in space missions, from the first unmanned space missions to the development of the first human-powered spacecraft to the first humans to visit the moon,” he explained.
“This is the first time that we’ve had this kind of effort funded by NASA to develop this kind the human interface for space exploration.”
What it means for you and your spaceflight The human-focused interfaces that DARPA is developing will be a “first-of-its-kind interface,” according to Lutz.
The goal of the Human-Robot Interface (HRI) project is to “explore how we can integrate the technologies of humanoids and robots in spaceships.”
The HRI program has been funded by the NASA Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD), which also funds the Human Exploration Rovers (HERV) program.
“By using humanoids in space for a range of applications, we hope to provide valuable human intelligence for space missions,” said Dr. Paul D. O’Neill, a senior advisor for DARPA, in a statement.
DARPO’s Human Exploration Rover (HERR) program is a joint effort between NASA and DARPA.
DARRAV’s HRI project will use “robotic arms to perform tasks such as carrying people and operating doors,” the agency said.
DARR’s Human Engineering Robot Development Program (HERDP) is a collaboration between DARPA/NASA and the US Department of Defense.
DARSA is also participating in the HRI and HERR programs.
The Human-Man Interaction (HMI) program will look at ways to “build robots that are smarter and more efficient than humans.”
The HMI program is also funded by DOE, which is also responsible for the Human Machine Interface program.
While DARPA claims to have developed a “robots that can think for themselves,” the program will “look at ways that humans can collaborate and build
