CIMON was developed by Airbus for the German space research centre DLR. The robot runs on artificial intelligence of IBM.

Astronauts will soon be able to call CIMON to ask the robot questions or issue commands. The experiment will show whether intelligent robots can make the work of astronauts easier and whether the collaboration between man and robot in space runs smoothly.
