Virtual force feedback teleoperation of the InsectBot using optical flow
Schill, Felix, Mahony, Robert, Corke, Peter, & Cole, Luke (2008) Virtual force feedback teleoperation of the InsectBot using optical flow. In Kim, Jonghyuk & Mahony, Robert (Eds.) Proceedings of the 2008 Australasian Conference on Robotics & Automation, Australian Robotics and Automation Association Inc., Canberra, Australia.
This paper proposes the use of optical flow from a moving robot to provide force feedback to an operator’s joystick to facilitate collision free teleoperation. Optical flow is measured by a pair of wide angle cameras on board the vehicle and used to generate a virtual environmental force that is reflected to the user through the joystick, as well as feeding back into the control of the vehicle. We show that the proposed control is dissipative and prevents the vehicle colliding with the environment as well as providing the operator with a natural feel for the remote environment. Experimental results are provided on the InsectBot holonomic vehicle platform.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
