Task Description: This Human Exploration Research Opportunities (HERO) FLAGSHIP NASA Research Announcement (NRA) response has been written to address item J of Appendix A of the NRA (Automated Data Collection Tools for Habitability Design and Assessment), PRD (Program Requirements Document) Risk of Incompatible Vehicle/Habitat Design, as well as associated IRP (Integrated Research Plan) Gap Space Human Factors Engineering (SHFE) SHFE-HAB-09. The objective of this proposal is to develop and validate an automated data collection system that delivers data useful in the analysis of space utilization and vehicle habitability pertaining to crew activities on the International Space Station (ISS) as well as potential long duration space missions. The investigation will utilize two independent technologies, 3D RFID-Real Time Location System (RTLS) and Microsoft Kinect 3D volumetric and anatomical scanning tools, integrating them into a single solution. The project will advance the integrated system through validation using the Human Research Program (HRP) Human Exploration Research Analog (HERA) platform. This synthesis of 2 technologies will enable HRP to collect all of the specific data and metrics requested by the NRA, as well as several additional measures. This comprehensive data collection methodology will provide data regarding: (a) the number of crew present in each area of the vehicle at any given time, (b) the quantity of time crew spend at each workstation in the performance of tasks, (c) the physical orientation of crew while utilizing the provided volume, (d) frequent or common translation paths and traffic flow patterns within the volume, (e) operational flow/volume required for mission tasks by single or multiple crew in the vehicle, and (f) 3D biomechanical and postural data related to individual and team based tasks.

The expected significance of this project is that it will provide NASA with a quantitative methodology for collecting data 3D space utilization data that is validated for use in flight analogs and has potential direct applicability for use in actual flight environments. This is a capability that does not currently exist at NASA, and will have a significant positive impact on NASA’s ability to generate quantitatively derived net habitable volume requirements by task and mission. It will also feed directly into the use of computational modeling and simulation for habitat/vehicle design by providing a valid method to generate input data for modeling efforts.

Research Impact/Earth Benefits: The results of this study and the tools developed can be leveraged in the design of habitats, vehicles, and constrained environments on Earth. The tools will allow for automated assessment of the volume used by personnel in the execution of a given task, as well as their interaction with other personnel collocated in the same work environment. This has application in the design of multiple environments including maritime, naval, aviation, space, and ground based environments.

Task Progress & Bibliography Information FY2018 
Task Progress: The Space Utilization Data System (SUDS) has been completed on budget and with the full scope of functionality originally planned when it was first proposed. It provides a facile system for collection of 3D volumetric data, rough order of magnitude postural data, and time and motion tracking over time. It fully records and recreates the full 3D environment being assessed, and the volumes occupied by the occupants of the scene. It has been designed with future updates in mind through programming methods used, and the ability to support alternative devices for inclusion in the system. Laboratory testing has demonstrated its accuracy and functionality in various regards, and future work is recommended to further document its capabilities. The system is ready for use and implementation in analog testing environments and use in human-in-the-loop testing. After some time of being implemented, a future iteration of this system or something derivative of it may find its way into a smart habitat or smart vehicle for the real-time assessment of operational human spaceflight activities.

Task Progress: Background and Introduction

The Space Human Factors and Habitability (SHFH) Element and the Behavioral Health and Performance (BHP) Element are interested in research regarding: Net Habitable Volume (NHV), the internal volume within a spacecraft or habitat that is available to crew for required activities, and the layout and accommodations within the volume. This work is funded by SHFH, and is designed to address aspects of the Risk of an Incompatible Vehicle/Habitat Design. NASA needs methods to unobtrusively collect NHV data, without impacting crew time. Data required includes metrics such as location and orientation of crew, volume used to complete tasks, internal translation paths, flow of work, and task completion times. In less constrained environments methods exist, yet many are obtrusive and require significant post-processing. Examples include infrared (IR) retro-reflective marker motion capture, GPS tracking, inertial tracking, and multi-camera methods. Due to constraints of space operations many such methods are infeasible. Inertial tracking systems typically rely upon a gravity vector to normalize sensor readings, and traditional IR systems are large and require extensive calibration. However, multiple technologies have not been applied to space operations for these purposes. Two of these include: 3D Radio Frequency Identification Real-Time Localization Systems (3D RFID-RTLS) and Depth imaging systems which allow for 3D motion capture and volumetric scanning (such as those using IR-depth cameras like the Microsoft Kinect or Light Detection and Ranging / Light-Radar systems, referred to as LIDAR).

Objective: Develop an automated methodology for collecting space utilization and NHV data: Adapt and integrate two independent technologies, 3D RFID-RTLS and Microsoft Kinect 3D volumetric and anatomical scanning tools, into a single solution, Format the data in such a way that it can be used in computational modeling, Validate the resulting system and data outcomes against standard measures, and Validation of the system in the Human Exploration Research Analog (HERA). Data collected by the system will include: The number of crew present in each area of the vehicle at any given time, The quantity of time crew spend at each workstation in the performance of tasks, The physical orientation of crew while utilizing the provided volume, Frequent or common translation paths and traffic flow patterns within the volume, Operational flow/volume required for mission tasks by single or multiple crew, 3D biomechanical and postural data related to individual and team based tasks.

Overall Approach and Schedule

The plan of work for this project includes several steps spread across a three-year period: Step 1 (2014-2016): Integration of the hardware technologies involved (3D RFID-RTLS and Kinect) and initial development of software interfaces. Step 2 (2016-2017): Development and refinement of the system and its software interfaces, following best practices in usability and human centered design, finalization of data formats, and conducting engineering pilot tests. Step 3 (2017-2018): Validation in HERA, delivery of final deliverables, and publication.

Status: The prototype system has been setup in a laboratory R&D environment at Johnson Space Center (JSC) Building 15, with additional lab environment at University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). A great deal of programming work has occurred on multiple fronts including: Graphical User Interface (GUI) and integration framework for the system, Creation of rendering framework, integration with standard Windows form functionality, Visualization and analysis technologies, Environment loading, transparency modulation, wire-framing, Camera control modes (1st and 3rd person perspectives), Point cloud acquisition, bill-boarded geometry shader based rendering, accumulation/buffering over time, and hard disk based data storage, Skeletal tracking of up to 6 people simultaneously, with real-time calculation of joint angles, Volume calculation from point cloud data (multiple methods / algorithms implemented), setup and calibration of the UWB RFID-RTLS system, implementation of RFID tracking data into the integration framework using the Ubisense API, and the use of multiple Kinect devices (communicating in a client-server configuration using a separate computer for each Kinect, with the prototype system running on a central computer which collates and integrates the input from each system).

Continuing and Forward Work

Continue to program and mature the components of the system: Kinect data acquisition and management, more accurate convex hull volume determinations, analysis of heat-mapping of accumulated point cloud data, time and motion study analyses using 3D RFID-RTLS data, development of additional visualization methods. Additionally, this Fall the system will be pilot tested, with some design iteration occurring post-test to rectify any issues found, and final validation to follow.
