SIMOC by Kai Staats

A Lunar/Mars habitat simulator
SIMOC [see-mok] is a scalable, interactive model of an off-world community. The model is given foundation on published data derived from Environmental Control and Life Support Systems (ECLSS) and closed ecosystem research at NASA and universities world-wide. The goal is to design a habitat that sustains human life with a combination of physico-chemical ECLSS and bioregenerative (living plant) systems, and is scalable to accommodate a growing community.

P9K0 study in locomotion by Kai Staats P9K0 study in locomotion by Kai Staats

P9K0

  • Overview: A low-cost, hands-on system for experiential learning as a means to engage learners in robotics, evolutionary algorithms, and computer science.
  • Stage of Development: Initiated in the fall of 2010, the prototype “walker” was used to gage the torque required to lift the limbs, and to determine the minimal number of joints required to simulate human motion over smooth terrain.
