An empirical study was performed in which human subjects were asked to execute a peg- insertion task through a telepresence link with force-feedback. Subjects controlled a remote manipulator through natural hand motions by using an anthropomorphic upper body exoskeleton. The force-reflecting exoskeleton could present haptic sensations in six degrees of freedom. Subjects viewed the remote site through a high fidelity stereo vision system. Subjects performed the peg-insertion task under three… Expand

Shared Control between Human and Machine: Using a Haptic Steering Wheel to Aid in Land Vehicle Guidance
When humans interface with machines, the control interface is usually passive and its response contains little information pertinent to the state of the environment. Usually, information flowsExpand
Position referenced force augmentation in teleoperated hydraulic manipulators operating under delayed and lossy networks: A pilot study
A novel force scheme for master-slave setups operating under a delayed/lossy network that reduces position errors at the slave end-effector, caused by the delay and packet loss. Expand
Haptic displays: how can we feel virtual environments?
Since virtual environments (VE) have facilitated new dimensions of human-computer-interaction, many applications have been realized. The drawback of these complex applications is the difficulty toExpand
