In our telepresence and virtual reality setups, a human operator immerses him/herself into a remote or virtual environment and controls a tele-operated device on motion and force level. By means of a multimodal human machine interface (HMI) the human perceives and acts as in the real world. Telerobotic systems, in contrast to telepresence systems, are implemented if the delay is too large to include the human operator into the control loop, or if the task can be performed semi-autonomously, i.e. the teleoperator acts according to its pre- or tele-programmed behaviour and the operator supervises the task execution.

The DLR MIRO is the second generation of versatile robot arms for surgical applications, developed at the Institute for Robotics and Mechatronics. With its low weight of 10 kg and dimensions similar to those of the human arm, the MIRO robot can assist the surgeon directly at the operating table where space is sparse. The planned scope of applications of this robot arm ranges from guiding a laser unit for the precise separation of bone tissue in orthopaedics to setting holes for bone screws, robot-assisted endoscope guidance and on to the multi-robot concept for (endoscopic) minimal invasive surgery.

In the future humanoid robots are envisioned in household applications as well as in space environments. The capability to carry out complex manipulation tasks is a key issue. For its achievement the development of robust control strategies and intelligent manipulation planners for dual handed manipulation is currently a matter of active research in the robotics community.

Hardware portion VSTONE OmniHead Corporation has developed a humanoid robot based, there is a small 22 degree freedom, “the rising backlash (MPEG 1MB)” has the world’s leading performance and movement. Continue reading
Humanoid robot “Saya” On September 7, appeared in the role of elementary school teacher in Tokyo, spoke to their children. Teacher spreads show a different face, is a happy child who had been so such a soft touch finger on the cheek. Saya is a laboratory was developed by Professor Hiroshi Kobayashi of Tokyo University Continue reading
