Tactile Telerobot

Tactile Telerobot- Realistic touch feedback to remote user anywhere in the world

The Tactile Telerobot is the world’s first haptic telerobotic system that transmits realistic touch feedback to an operator located anywhere in the world.

About

The Tactile Telerobot is the world’s first haptic telerobotic system that transmits realistic touch feedback to an operator located anywhere in the world. The Tactile Telerobot integrates three products, each the leader in its respective category. HaptX Gloves bring industrial-grade haptic feedback and natural interaction for precise and intuitive input control. The Shadow Dexterous Hand mimics human hand dexterity, replicating the movements and position of the human operator’s hand. SynTouch BioTac sensors capture tactile information and transmits haptic feedback data back to the operator’s hand with high accuracy and low latency. When all three of these products come together, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The Tactile Telerobot is a first-of its-kind system and is now available for advanced research and development in teleoperation.

Key Benefits

Key Benefits • Natural interaction Robot operators intuitively control robotic hands, with little to no training required. • Realistic haptic feedback Tactile and force feedback give the operator critical control information, improving speed and reducing errors. • High dexterity Capture of full range of hand motion • Precise control Sub-millimeter motion capture accuracy • Remote operation Control robot from anywhere in the world

Applications

Telepresence - Social care & Elderly care e-Health - virtually take the clinician to remote locations Training - virtual training for difficult tasks applications in extreme environments like nuclear, pharma sterile manufacturing, space, oil & gas, etc
