Direct teleoperation with multisecond time-delayed telemetry between master and slave is challenging for humans to perform. When controlling a holonomic robot with many degrees of freedom, operators may incidentally provide commands in an intended direction without realizing their mistake until receiving feedback several seconds later. For some(More)
The ability to refuel satellites on-orbit using teleoperated robots could extend the life of satellite missions, potentially saving time and resources for both industry and space agencies. One critical step in the refueling process is to gain access to the satellite's fueling port by cutting through a seam of tape that adheres two sections of multi-layer(More)
Traditional methods of camera orientation control for teleoperated robots involve gamepads or joysticks with the motion of analog sticks used to control the camera direction. However, this control scheme often leads to unintuitive mappings between user input and camera actuator output. This paper describes a master-slave style camera position and(More)
The 2013 Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) Pioneers Workshop, which will be held in conjunction with the 8th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction, is the premiere venue for student research in the field. This highly selective workshop seeks to foster creativity, communication, and collaboration between the world's top student researchers(More)
In GPS-denied environments, robot systems typically revert to navigating with dead-reckoning and relative mapping, accumulating error in their global pose estimate. In this paper, we propose Feature-based Localization between Air and Ground (FLAG), a method for computing global position updates by matching features observed from ground to features in an(More)
