Transforming remote operations and keeping the personnel safe
TNO, Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research, has created a Haptic Bimanual Telexistence System using SenseGlove DK1. The system enables the operator to interact with the environment many miles away by touching and feeling remote objects with the robotic arms.
Thanks to force-feedback technology the operator gets to feel what the robot “feels”, experiencing the size and density of the remote objects. This concept could help military personnel and emergency services to safely undertake dangerous tasks without being present physically.
