Highly Dexterous Telemanipulation with Haptic Feedback and Shared Autonomy
The project aims to develop a fundamentally new robotic system for telemanipulation. In particular, by including new principles for micro-actuators able to display haptic information and proximity feedback. This actuator is based on the concept of electrostatic vibrations. Furthermore, an improvement of dexterity in telemanipulation for humans will be achieved by new strategies using shared autonomy. With these new techniques, tele-applications such as surgical procedures will become more intuitive. The results will be verified in user studies and importantly, new stability proofs of the systems will ensure stable manipulation in time-delayed systems.
