Robot Avatar for remote physical activity
Most tasks involving interaction with the physical environment still require human operators to be physically there. Yet, many high-responsibility, one-off activities are conducted in environments that are not easily reachable, or even pose hazards to human operators.
In this use case we evaluate the feasibility of remotize physical activities, such as industrial plant monitoring, inspection and maintenance in remote or dangerous environments by introducing intuitive interfaces to transfer the pilot’s manual skills to a robotic avatar.
The abilities to achieve
Key ability Intuitive Interfaces
Control the robot with immersive devices, first person experience
Key ability Manipulation
Use common tools or items of different sizes
Key ability Perception
Multisensorial feedback restitution (vision, audio, force ecc.)
