Paper Abstract

This paper presents a summary of the design and integration of a haptic interface with a nuclear industry accepted control system and manipulator. The control system is a UK Robotics Advanced Teleoperation Controller and the manipulator is a Schilling Titan II hydraulic arm. Operator performance has been studied for peg in the hole, grinding and drilling tasks, both with and without haptic communication. The results of these experiments are presented.
