Improved Tele-Control for Manipulator Equipped Unmanned Ground Vehicles
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Under the Phase I program, ASI will examine the available technologies for improving manipulation, create preliminary designs of how to integrate these technologies on current platforms (the Talon and Packbot), and simulate the effects of improved dynamic modeling and sensor feedback on manipulator performance. The deliverables for Phase I will thus be: f?> Preliminary design of retrofit packages for the Talon and Packbot including: o Improved joint angle encoders o Force and torque sensors o Stereovision camera o MEMS IMU o Computing resources o Add-on improved gripper f?> HRI tests using 3D visualization with a stereo display to document improvements resulting from enhanced depth perception f?> A simulation of manipulation control using a dynamic model of the MTRS Packbot
