Paper Abstract

A polhemus-based telemanipulation system is being developed and tested in the Mechatronic System and Robotics Research group at the University of Surrey. This system provides a natural and intuitive operator input and easy remote control of a robot manipulator. The technique developed in this system will be applied to a telepresence system which has been developed in the research group for performing teleoperations in an unstructured remote and potentially hazardous environments. In this paper, the overview of the system architecture is provided. Some experiments have been conducted to evaluate this telemanipulation system and the evaluation and experimental results are presented.
