This paper describes the development of a open and immersive Web-based augmented virtual environment for the tele-robotic control of mining robots. Many mining tasks must be done in remote locations. The most convenient mechanism for communication for this task is the Internet, for which a browser-based graphical user interface is developed allowing the operator to control the machine by specifying high-level tasks. Rich-user interactivity is provided in the Web-browser interface through the…

The Development of a Telerobotic Rock Breaker

The development of a tele-robotic rock breaker deployed at a mine over 1000kms from the remote operations centre is described, which demonstrated that the system is safe, productive (sometimes faster) and integrates seamlessly with mine operations.

Multi-agent remote control of the RobuTER/ULM mobile manipulator robot

The work carried out in the development of a multi-agent architecture for remote control of mobile manipulator robot is described, which is done on the RobuTER/ULM robot.

Assessment of a user centered interface for teleoperation and 3D environments

A direct 3D user interface based on visual and haptic feedback that can be correctly operated by untrained users is presented and surprising results show that parallax is the most effective feature while stereoscopy is often detrimental and force feedback requires training.

Design and Development of Teleoperation for Forest Machines: An Overview

The state-of-the-art in teleoperation of forestry machinery is reviewed as well as teleoperation in similarly unstructured and uncontrolled environments such as mining and underwater.

Multi-Agent Architecture for Telelerobotics of Mobile Robot Manipulators

A multi-agent architecture for telerobotics of mobile robot manipulators with autonomy of decision-making while performing a cooperative mission is employed at the local site and transmitted to the remote site for execution.

Robotisation of forestry harvesting in New Zealand — An overview

A project is outlined to develop a teleoperated steep slope forestry harvester that is appropriate for use in the New Zealand environment and the challenges of the project include overcoming communication delay, latency and packet loss.

Teleoperation for Steep Country Forestry Harvesting in New Zealand

New Zealand’s forests are commonly planted on steep slopes and include large trees. The research in this thesis contributes to the long term objective of developing a teleoperated mechanised

Remote laboratories: enhancing accredited engineering degree programs

A criterion-by-criterion analysis is used to show that remote laboratories have no negative impact on any of these criteria and in some cases actually have a positive impact, therefore the accreditation of academic programs containing remote laboratories are just as likely to have apositive outcome.
