Post-doc Fredrik Ryden shows off some of the work he’s been doing with a Kuka robot.
The Smart Emergency Response System team that includes the BioRobotics Lab showcased their ongoing collaborative efforts to build novel haptic and teleoperated system to enhance disaster response. You can read more about the event at the C4C website here.
The ongoing work is shown in the video below, where a drone tracks and follows a teleoperated robot for communication and relaying information between operator and remote system. This particular demonstration was done at the Boeing Collaborative Systems Lab.
