Analysis, Dynamics and Control of Robotic System for Docking to Orbital Space Systems

Space exploration and exploitation requires the simultaneous coexistence of people and machines. The human need for more information has made the use of satellites important. The need of satellites that can perform for longer time becomes increasingly evident.

On Impedance Control For Landing Mechanisms On Comets And Planets

Recent successes of missions, such as the Rosetta, have increased the interest in the robotic exploration of other planets and asteroids. Although, in most landers passive landing systems are used, bouncing due to inappropriate descent speed and hardware malfunction have been observed in cases such as that of the Philae.
