Haptic Shared Control for Multi-operator TelemanipulationLead: Jeroen van Oosterhout
2012-2016 (PhD Project, Active)
A subset of tele-manipulation tasks requires a pair of operators acting simultaneously to dynamically manoeuvre and align objects. The problem in such co-operative tasks is that the operators typically lack awareness of the task constraints and each other’s control actions, especially when a heavy load structurally deflects itself or the manipulator during load transfer.
This PhD thesis will focus on experimentally analysing such tasks in a virtual environment, and on supporting the operators through a shared awareness of dynamic constraints.
