REMOTE HUMAN-ROBOT COOPERATION VIA INTERNET USING WEBOS-BASED TOUCH INTERFACE

Igor Belousov

Abstract

We consider at this paper the complicated task when the robot manipulator is controlled remotely via the World Wide Web and has to catch the moving object. The robot working environment is non-structured and dynamic. Neither classical teleoperation nor pure robot programming could solve the task of grasping the moving object in such a case. We used the shared autonomy approach to implement the capture task. The operator plans the capture at high level, and the capture is implemented by the robot using vision system. Human-Robot Interface is based on HP webOS Open Mobile Platform using HP Pre or HP TouchPad (tablet computer) as the operator consoles. Using the touch-based control interface and real-time 3D models of the remote robot and working environment make the grasping operation effective, reliable and simple.
