Paper Abstract

This paper introduces an Augmented Reality interface that can be used in supervisory control of a robot over the Internet. The operator's client interface requires only a modest computer to run the Java control applet. Operators can completely specify the remote manipulator's path, using an Augmented Realty stick cursor, superimposed on multiple monoscopic images of the workspace. The same cursor is used to identify objects in the workspace, allowing interactive modeling of the workspace environment. Operating place predefined wireframe models of objects on an image of the workspace and use the cursor to align them with corresponding objects in the image.
