The Space Systems Laboratory has been involved in experimental investigations of extravehicular activity (EVA)/robotic cooperation for over two decades. Dating from the initial testing of the Beam Assembly Teleoperator (BAT) in 1984, the SSL has used the advantages of the neutral buoyancy environment to allow direct interactions between EVA subjects and robots in an integrated work site. These tests have consistently indicated that the combination of humans and robots, working together, is significantly more productive than either system working alone.
