Human Interface for Teleoperated Object Manipulation with a Soft Growing Robot [article]

Fabio Stroppa, Ming Luo, Kyle Yoshida, Margaret M. Coad, Laura H. Blumenschein, Allison M. Okamura
2019 arXiv   pre-print
These results demonstrate that our body-movement-based interface is an effective method for control of a soft growing robot manipulator.  ...  In this paper, we propose a human-centered interface that allows users to teleoperate a soft growing robot for manipulation tasks using arm movements.  ...  The operator can therefore control the robot in whatever body pose is most comfortable. III. SOFT-GROWING ROBOT We built a soft growing robot specifically for manipulation tasks.  ...

Introduction to Haptics for Neurosurgeons

Rachael L'Orsa, Chris J.B. Macnab, Mahdi Tavakoli
2013 Neurosurgery  
Most surgical robots, however, isolate surgeons from the full range of human senses during a procedure.  ...  We not only outline the current and future benefits of haptics but also introduce concepts in the fields of robotic technology and computer control.  ...  The current paradigm of surgical robotics requires the robotic manipulator to follow the position of the surgeon's hand, in which case haptic interfaces need to be added to the existing motion control  ...
