Keywords: Astronauts, Cat, Robot, Stress


Humans are social creatures. Unfriendly, isolated, and harsh space conditions will affect an astronaut’s psychological state and could cause stress or depression to the astronaut due to a lack of social interactions. Cat is one of the most popular pets in the world. Cat is said to have positive effects on humans, such as reducing stress, lowering blood pressure, and reducing the risk of heart attacks. The idea in this study was to design a realistic cat-shaped robot that could accompany and interact with astronauts as they explore space. This robot can be equipped with functions to detect the astronaut's mood using an infrared sensor, a smart communication bracelet for two-way communications with the astronauts, a graceful hind and strong muscles to offer high flexibility in movement, and a warm, soft, and fluffy fabric that mimics cat fur. This robot is tasked with accompanying its astronaut owner on missions in space. The materials that will be used are reinforced carbon/carbon composite, steel, and titanium on the inside of the robot, and Kevlar, nylon, and faux fur on the outside of the robot.
