Developed a low-level I/O communications software (in C) on APA512S machine vision processor and a PC to provide interface with vision subsystems of Extra-Vehicular Activity (EVA) Retriever.
Supported EVA Retriever's vision perception group. The retriever is a robot designed and built at JSC/NASA to retrieve free-flying objects in space, like an astronaut and a tool, during an EVA. Procured vision-related hardware, like APA512S machine vision processor and a computer-controlled turn-table, for the EVA Retriever.
