BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Balance and mobility training consists of activities that carry a high risk for falling. The purpose of this article is to describe a novel robotic system for allowing challenging, yet safe, balance and mobility training in persons at high risk for falls. METHOD With no initial preconceptions of what device we would build, a(More)
This paper presents enhanced remote manipulation of tools for D&D tasks by extending teleoperation with teleautonomy and tele-collaboration. This work builds on a reactive, agent-based control architecture, which is well suited to unstructured and unpredictable environments, and cobot control technology, which implements a virtual fixture that can be used(More)
For deactivation and decommissioning (D&D) of contaminated structures in the weapons complex, remotely operated robotic systems are expected to replace human workers from hazardous radiation and difficult work environments, while improving productivity and reducing costs. Nevertheless, the major drawback of currently available remote operation technology is(More)
