Paper Abstract

A prototype operator control station (OCS) for controlling a remote telerobotic system is being developed and tested. The operational scenario is for an OCS which may be on the ground or in space, controlling a telerobot during the performance of assembly and maintenance tasks in space. The principal goal of this effort is to demonstrate effective remote control of telerobotic operations on realistic tasks, with communications between local and remote sites constrained in both latency and thruput. The prototype OCS will be used to control a telerobot located at the Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston, Texas, as well as one co-located with the OCS prototype at JPL. This paper provides an overview of the OCS architecture and operator interface and describes implementation status.
