Design considerations of dexterous telerobotics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Dexterous telerobotic systems are system in which the operation of a robotic hand is remotely controlled by the operator’s hand and finger motion. Such systems have been slower to develop than general telerobotic systems which do not utilize finger motion. This is due to the requirements and challenges placed by dexterous telerobotics on both the remote and the local sites. The current chapter presents the challenges and design considerations of dexterous telerobotic systems and discusses them in the context of different remote control methodologies, namely direct, bilateral, supervisory, and shared control.
