Paper Abstract

Color marker employed in conjunction with space robots for on-orbit assembly has been developed. The marker consists of three printed discs with different colors. When used for on-orbit assembly, markers will be attached at the proximity of the connection mechanisms of assembly segment for large space structures. The distance and attitude of the segments can be measured by the positional relationship between the color discs of the marker. From the evaluation test, it has been verified that the performance of the measuring system with the color markers can meet the requirement of the space robot arms.
