“Advanced Remote Cooperation among Humans and Robots with Force Feedback”

Abstract: Recently, a number of researchers focus on studies on cooperative work by employing multiple remote robot systems with force feedback over networks. In a remote robot system, for example, a human can operate a remote robot with force sensors over a network by using a haptic interface device while watching video. Each human can perceive reaction force via the haptic interface device when the robot arm hits/touches some objects. Therefore, by using multiple systems, we can do various types of work which only humans cannot do or only robots cannot do. In such work, we need to enhance cooperation among humans and robots (that is, between robots and robots, between robots and humans, and between humans and humans) by using force feedback as well as voice and video over a network. To realize stable and high-quality remote robot control with force feedback, we need to integrate and enhance stabilization control and QoS (Quality of Service) control which have independently been studied in the robot & control engineering field and in the communications & network engineering field, respectively, so far. In the speech, we will explain the current state of study on advanced cooperation among humans and robots by using multiple remote robot systems with force feedback and present new directions of the study.
