Researchers at McGill University have developed a new concept for studying dynamics and control of robotic grasping of objects in space. The researchers use a small helium blimp to emulate a free-floating object. This video presents the design and control of the fully-actuated airship. Three maneuvers are demonstrated in the video: station-keeping, rotational motion and 3D trajectory tracking.
