Autonomous Robotics for Space Exploration

Nasa plans on funding two competitions, to begin in 2007, in the hopes of developing autonomous robots that will be able to perform complex tasks in space. One competition will involve terrestrial robots that must assemble intricate structures from simple building blocks. The other will involve auto-piloted planes that must follow complex flight paths and be able to detect targets on the ground.

Robots aim to explore and build on other worlds
