An Advanced, Adaptive and Multimodal Graphical User Interface for Human-robot Teleoperation in Radioactive Scenarios

Giacomo Lunghi, Raul Marin Prades, Mario Di Castro

Abstract

In this paper we present the user interface of a tele-robotic system, which allows CERN users to perform visual inspections and tele-manipulation tasks inside the CERN accelerator complex. This graphical user interface has been designed to be simple to use, in order to provide the operator with a comfortable system. Moreover, the user interface is robot independent and it adapts itself to the robot configuration, in order to provide a general way for controlling any kind of robot used at CERN. Furthermore it allows the operator to choose between different kinds of input (e.g. keyboard, joypad, haptic device, etc), in order to provide the most easy human-robot interaction interface, which is a fundamental requirement for safe operations.
