An area of increasing interest in Al Robotics and Computer Vision is integrating techniques from these fields to the problem of controlling autonomous systems. Space-based systems such as NASA''s robotic assembly of Orbital Replacement Units (ORU''s) provide a complex realistic domain for this integration research. In this paper we report on current MITRE research in the use of situated control for autonomous robotic assembly of ORUs. A wrist-mounted camera is used to acquire the pose of ORU''s. An on-line control module uses the pose data to refine the on-going robot actions so that the planned task can be executed both safely and robustly. Experimental results on a Cincinnati Milacron T3 Industrial robot at Goddard Space Right Center (GSFC) Intelligent Robotic Laboratory will be included.
