NASA Challenge: Develop 3D Models for Robonaut Simulation-Blanket Stand

  • Status: Closed
  • Prize: $150
  • Entries Received: 9
  • Winner: tarun3693

Contest Brief

We (NASA) need to develop a number of high resolution 3D models to be used for Robonaut simulations. These 3D models are to be developed based on photographs of real items (see attached files). These simulated objects would be used for various grasp and manipulator testing.

This particular challenge is to build a 3D model of an Extra-Vehicular Activity (EVA or spacewalk) Handrail. This item will be used by the Robonaut team to develop vision and grasping controls to increase R2's ability to interact with non-rigid, compliant objects in its workspace. It will be particular valuable to have an accurate location of the two quarter turn fasteners that hold the blanket in place.

Note that the pictures for this item were taken for two configurations. One with the blanket closed and one with the blanket open. Since the blanket is not visible in all angles, some of the images may be duplicate.

Submissions should provide the models for both the open blanket and closed blanket configurations.

There is a scale in the attached imagery is in inches. All final model submissions must be delivered in on of the following formats: .prt (Solidworks, ProE); .step or .stp; .iges; .stl; .dae. NOTE: Freelancer submissions will need to be image file views of your model. If you win the contest, you will then send/transfer the model files to NASA via email, dropbox, etc.

All entries will be judged on the accuracy, quality, and fidelity (detail) of the model produced. Note that where highly similar top submissions are produced, the submission entered first will win.

Employer Feedback

“Tarun3693 did an great job of creating a detailed 3D model of a blanket stand for use in our NASA Robonaut simulation. This was a contest and this was the winning submission.”

    Quick question for the community. Do you prefer submissions for this kind of a contest to be sealed or unsealed?

      Thanks samar9. We actually asked this question generally over all of our contests (and not in response to this particular one). Still, interesting insights! Thanks.

    Just over 4 hours left! Get your submissions in and don't wait until the last minute. We've had members have issues with uploading files right before the deadline that resulted in them not getting their submission in on time. We cannot extend this contest since this is part of a study... so the duration must remain 10 days. Best of luck!

    hola he visto todos tu peticiones pero no entiendo que es lo que quieres posiblemente se por que no manejo el idioma ingles pero creo que te tiene que explicar mas posiblemente yo tengo la solución soy de Cali Colombia técnico electrónic0 con muchos años de experiencia siempre me gusto la tecnología y los sistema creo estar capacitado para crear lo que quieres pero no comprendo tendría que ver un ejemplo

      Hola disculpa mi ignorancia pero sigo sin entender lo que entiendo es que me dan una imagen en 2D y cree un Grafico de la misma imagen simulando un 3D o tengo que hacer un grafico con una aplicación que cree gráficos 3D mira este link http://alisdesign.prosite.com/80726/707826/work/vivitek-2d-3d es asi

      manuelc65, el objetivo es realizar el modelado 3D de los objetos presentados en las imagenes. Debes mostrar imagenes (o bien renders) del trabajo realizado y ellos seleccionan el que mejor se parezca. Luego deberias entregar el trabajo en los formatos que mencionaron ".prt (Solidworks, ProE); .step or .stp; .iges; .stl; .dae."

      It is harder to capture large objects at the same detail. However, we do have a submission based on the existing photos that is seems to capture the right level of detail, so you should have what you need. Good luck!

    Why no guarantee on this one?

      It sometimes surprises us how difficult it is for us to convey the concepts to our colleagues. Its is less about grasping the concept and more of applying its use to existing processes and practices. We actually work and collaborate across all government agencies (and quite a few industries) and most large companies are struggling with this same issue. If you survey most conferences dealing with crowdsourcing, you will find this to be a hot topic as most large companies/entities are struggling with adoption of new methods. But then again, organizational change has always been hard. As Freelancers, it is probably not something you have to deal with as much.

      Some models are complex and they may require a few days to get it completed. Regarding your above crowd sourcing problem, the main issue is targeting a large spectrum which can cause a large variable in quality and ideas , where as employing a particular employee or freelancer , you have the ability to re approach and amend where problem arise. This two way conference allows better communication and input in terms of both quality and financial gain for both parties.

    Maybe a little bit more advertising? Sad to see that the entry's are slowing down.

      I think Freelancer just added the link on the main page last night so hopefully that will help it gain momentum.

      the models got harder too so that will normally dishearten most people
