Human-robot interaction (HRI) often relies on audio and visual channels for communication between robots and human users. While these methods have proven to be successful, the reliance on these two channels limits their effectiveness in extreme environments and for people with certain disabilities. In this paper, we present an alternative communication method in which users manipulate the robot’s arm as a form of input while also using the arm for output. This haptic interaction enables users… CONTINUE READING
