The first humanoid robot in space, Robonaut 2, has been selected as the NASA Government Invention of the Year for 2014. The robot, which is currently assisting crew aboard the International Space Station, was judged alongside dozens of other space-worthy inventions by the NASA selection committee, which evaluated entries on criteria such as Aerospace Significance, Industry Significance, and Technology Readiness. Robonaut also has redundant force and motion sensors that cause it to shut off when it bumps into something, a crucial feature for a collaborative robot working in close proximity to people, and a technology that's made its way into a new generation of industrial robots.
