The Autonomous Walking Inspection and Maintenance Robot (AWIMR) task will provide NASA with an arthropod robot capable of autonomously navigating across truss structures as well as paneled surfaces in space environments to perform inspection and maintenance tasks autonomously or under teleoperation. This capability will provide significantly expanded architecture options and flexibility while reducing cost and improving safety by reducing requirements for humans to perform extra vehicular activities (EVAs).
