Hydraulic manipulators are commonly used for tasks that require large forces over a large workspace. Current hydraulic manipulators are often operated using individual joint control. Since many of these manipulators are long kinematic chains, such as excavators and concrete pump trucks, it can take years of training and experience to become a true expert operator, resulting in a large number of novice operators. Haptics and coordinated control have been shown to improve various operator… CONTINUE READING
