Team ORBIT: Research Participants Needed
Team ORBIT, a 3rd year Gemstone research team, is looking for students with experience with or an interest in robotics to participate in their study. Under the mentorship of Dr. David Akin of the Space Systems Laboratory, the team is performing experiments to determine a control scheme for a single-person spacecraft that would be optimal. Participants will be asked to perform a Fitts’s tapping test which involves using your hand or controlling a robot to touch designated buttons on a board when they are lit up. Your participation in the research should take no more than one hour, and you will receive $10 in Terrapin Express funds upon completion. If you are interested or have any questions, contact Team ORBIT at TeamORBIT0106@gmail.com.
