Title:


    TELESAR V: TELExistence Surrogate Anthropomorphic Robot

Presenter(s):


Entry Number: 23


Description:


    Telexistence is fundamentally a concept named for the general technology that enables a human being to have a real-time sensation of being at a place other than where he actually exist, and to interact with the remote environment [Tachi et al. 1990]. We have achieved human-like neck movements to visually interact with a remote object in 3 dimensional space through previous versions of TELESAR [Watanabe et al. 2007]. We introduce “TELESAR V” which maps a user’s spinal1, neck, head and arm movements into a dexterous slave robot and allowing the operator to feel the robot’s body as his own body through visual, auditory, kinesthetic and fingertip tactile [Sato et al. 2007] sensation. With TELESAR V, operator can perform teleoperations confidently with no prior practice.
