Project Title: Design of a Telerobotic System over the CCSE LAN
Telerobotics allows a human operator using a master arm (client program)
to remotely teleoperate a slave robot arm (server program).
This is particularty useful for operations in hostile environemnts
like under-water, radio-active, medical, etc.
The quality of the interactions (force/effort and vision) between the
operator and the slave arm depends on available communication
technology and badwidth.
High speed netwroks and multimedia services can provide an effective
tool for the implementation of high-quality telerobotics and
These allow (1) arbitrary distance separation between master and slave
stations (mobile networks), (2) flexible operability, and (3) continous
high-quality visual (stereo-vision) and force information exchange.
The project is to implement a simple telerobotic system that consists of
a network interface between:
(1) a client machine (PC) having a master-arm (or joystick) and a
3-D visualization mechanism , and
(2) a server machine having a slave-arm with two video cameras
Mainly all this equipment is installed in the Robotics lab.
The students will use a network-oriented programming language and
some packages (Microsoft Netmeeting and others) in the above
Project Code: MAM8.
