Self-deployable Habitat for Extreme Environments

Objective

"The main objective of the SHEE project is the exploration of an effective integration of architecture and robotics for space applications. The goal is to develop a robotically-deployable habitat design introducing generic principles which would help in defining main themes for further development of the standards for robotics integrated into the architecture regarding safety and for the development and design of larger robotic structures. Self-deployable autonomous habitats are needed in particular in extreme environments without infrastructure and heavy machinery.
The SHEE type of habitat will provide significant background for further development and evolution of extra-terrestrial habitable structures and will provide a methodology and results that can be translated into more ""normal"" conditions, to achieving a more efficient, high-tech sector on earth.
The final product will have a form of an example of a functional habitat for further testing and development. The concept is developed with a vision to correspond with an analogue testing habitat. The results of the SHEE project will be applicable in both space and terrestrial conditions, such as in extreme environments on Earth or during disaster mitigation."
