NASA's Space to Ground: Meet CIMON

NASA's Space to Ground is your weekly update on what's happening aboard the International Space Station. The Pilot Study with the Crew Interactive MObile companioN (Cimon) assists crew members with the following:

Crew activity/maintenance: Cimon can facilitate and improve efficiency of a crew activity or a trained maintenance task if feasible. The astronaut can work freely with both hands while having voice controlled access to documents and media in their field of view.

Science support/experimentation: complex science tasks would benefit from onsite video documentation of a procedure. Cimon can function as a mobile camera to document the procedure for either live or retrospective analysis. Cimon should be used to support crew in the execution of the procedure.

Motor skills learning/skill training: it is hypothesized that Cimon can speed up the performance of a motor skills task.

The Pilot Study with the Crew Interacitve MObile companioN (Cimon) is a technology demonstration project, and an observational study, that aims to obtain the first insights into the effects on crew support by an artificial intelligence (AI), in terms of efficiency and acceptance during long-term missions in space. Spaceflight missions put the crew under a substantial amount of stress and workload, and it is thought that AI could provide operational support to crew members.
