Earlier we saw a tear down of the Google Project Tango, and now Google has released a video of Project Tango an the NASA Sphere’s in action, have a look at the video below.
Since the summer of 2013, the Project Tango team has been working closely with a team at the NASA Ames Research Center. The goal: to integrate a Project Tango prototype onto a robotic platform, called SPHERES, that flies inside the International Space Station. The SPHERES program aims to develop zero-gravity autonomous platforms that could act as robotic assistants for astronauts or perform maintenance activities independently on station. The 3D-tracking and mapping capabilities of Project Tango would allow SPHERES to reconstruct a 3D-map of the space station and, for the first time in history, enable autonomous navigation of a floating robotic platform 230 miles above the surface of the earth.
The Google Project Tango and Nasa SPHERES will be launched into orbit this summer, you can find out more details over at Google below.
