Special Robotics Seminar
Overview of Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory's Dexterous Telemanipulation Research: Applications to Bimanual Operations and Computer Integrated Surgery

Mike Kutzer
Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory Robotics Group

The field of robotic telemanipulation has a long history. In 1954, Goertz and Thompson published work describing an electronically controlled teleoperation system for nuclear environments. Through the 1960s, extensive work continued including demonstrations of the General Electric Handyman, a bimanual teleoperation utilizing both visual and force-feedback. In the years that followed, extensive work continued, expanding telemanipulation applications into space, undersea operations, and even surgery. The general problem faced in all telemanipulation applications is how best to control and offer feedback from a manipulation system using a limited set of command inputs and feedback modalities. In recent years, JHU/APLís Robotics and Autonomous Systems group has concentrated efforts on direct telemanipulation of bimanual mobile robotic platforms with applications to explosive ordinance disposal and small-scale hyper-redundant manipulators for surgical applications. This presentation will offer an overview of the platforms being investigated, the variety of control techniques being explored, and efforts to quantify user performance.
