Robotic teleoperation has gained popularity in various applications, including the nuclear industry, where the experience and intelligence of a human operator is necessary for making complex decisions that are beyond the autonomy of robots. Human-robot interfaces that help strengthen an operator’s situational awareness without inducing excessive...

Hand pose tracking in 3D configuration is one of the popular components of human-computer interaction research, which can be seen applying in virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). Although the research field has been thoroughly studied in the past few decades, most methods emphasized recognizing hand gestures or joint locations....

This paper introduces a method for gesture-based teleoperation where the human operator can virtually exist within the remote environment using mixed reality. The proposed method visually mixes the operator’s body with their perception of the remote environment, so that the operator is virtually present at the remote site. The idea is the that...

Tele-impedance can increase interaction perfor- mance between a robotic tool and unstructured/unpredictable environment during teleoperation. However, the existing tele- impedance interfaces have several ongoing issues, such as long calibration times and various obstructions for the human oper- ator. In addition, they are all designed to be...

Teleoperated semi-autonomous care robots aim to alleviate work pressure from care workers. Unlike many traditional stiff position-controlled robots, the care robot is operating in a shared environment with humans that is often unpredictable and unknown. Especially when dealing with tasks that involve contact with the environment, modulation of...

Haptic assistance (HA) has been shown to be useful in a wide variety of applications by providing the benefits of automation while keeping the human in the loop. In recent years, providing additional visual feedback has been found to provide benefits to HA interfaces by complementing their advantages and mitigating their weaknesses. However, the...

The progress in technology has made vehicles safer and the quest to make them even more safe is never ending. Autonomous cars present the solution to make cars much more safer by eliminating the primary cause of road accidents, human error. However, autonomous cars tend to fail in decision making especially in complex traffic environment...

Huang, Yu-Chih (author)
Teleoperation of a robot is often necessary when the remote site is not safe for humans. Moreover, to interact with dynamic environments safely, a teleoperation method called teleimpedance, which allows the human operator to control the impedance of the robot, is used. The main drawback of this method is that the human workload may increase....

Joint limits and singularities limit the total and intuitive utilization of the robotic workspace in VR mediated teleoperation. This paper presents the development and validation of a novel null-space projection control method, used to adjust joint configurations of teleoperated robot arms containing joint limits and singularities. The novel...

This paper describes the development of a Smart Sleeve control mechanism for Active Assisted Living. The Smart Sleeve is a physically worn sleeve that extends the user's control capability within his/her intelligent built-environment by enabling (1) direct actuation and/or (2) teleoperation via a virtual interface. With respect to the first,...

Automation in a domestic environment is not flawless and human interference will be necessary, for implementing robots in this environment. <br/>When remotely controlling semi-autonomous robots, proposed concepts can be divided into two main concepts: To trade control back and forth between the human and the operator and to share control...

Haptic Shared Control (HSC) can improve operator performance during teleoperation. HSC uses assistive forces on the master device to guide the operator's control input towards a reference trajectory. However, the reference trajectory might be incorrect due to inaccuracies in the sensed or modeled environment and thus not match the intended...

Teleoperation allow us to manipulate environments that cannot be manipulated directly by a human operator, like space and deep sea, but they are also used in surgery to scale movements and filter out unwanted movements. Commercial teleoperators often lack haptic feedback to the user. Literature shows that a lack of haptic feedback can reduce...

Teleoperation allows the use of human intelligence and decision making in remote tasks which are too dangerous for humans to perform. Technologies such as force feedback and haptic guidance have shown to increase task efficiency during teleoperation. In an unmodeled environment, sensors provide input for haptic guidance or present extra...

Wave-variable transformation is a means to maintain stability of haptic teleoperation in the presence of communication time delays. Its drawback is that it affects haptic perception of remote properties and thereby degrades transparency. This paper studies the effect of wave-variable transformation on human haptic perception. Based on a...

Teleoperation – performing tasks remotely by controlling a robot – permits the execution of many important tasks that would otherwise be infeasible for people to carry out directly. Nuclear accident recovery, deep water operations, and remote satellite servicing are just three examples. Remote task execution principally offers two extremes for...

For the planned teleoperated maintenance of the experimental fusion plant ITER the time performance will be critical. Telemanipulated task execution is however characterised by long execution times compared to similar tasks performed hands-on. There is little quantitative research on task performance of telemanipulated maintenance available...

This research investigates a neuromuscular analysis based tuning algorithm for haptic cues that has been hypothesized to simultaneously improve safety and workload when compared to heuristic tuning, applied to a haptic collision avoidance system for unmanned aircraft teleoperation. This novel tuning method considers the combined stiffness of the...

To improve teleoperated task performance and control effort, haptic shared control can assist the human operator along a safe and optimal path with continuous guiding forces from an automated controller. But previous research tested such shared control on tasks that were accurately defined in the controller (giving flawless guiding forces),...
