Paper Abstract

This paper describes the ongoing research work on developing a telerobotic system in Mechatronic Systems and Robotics Research group at the University of Surrey. As human operators' manual control of remote robots always suffer from reduced performance and difficulties in perceiving information from the remote site, a system with a certain level of intelligence and autonomy will help to solve some of these problems. Thus, this system has been developed for this purpose. It also serves as an experimental platform to test the idea of using the combination of human and computer intelligence in teleoperation and finding out the optimum balance between them. The system consists of a Polhemus- based input device, a computer vision sub-system and a graphical user interface which communicates the operator with the remote robot. The system description is given in this paper as well as the preliminary experimental results of the system evaluation.
