The Design and Performance of Low Cost Haptic Interfaces to Control Precision Nuclear Robotic System

Nuclear decommissioning environments are challenging and hazardous, typically involving high temperatures, pressures and extreme radiation. Robotic devices are commonly used to complete tasks within challenging environments, which would otherwise pose a risk to human health, however remotely operating robots without full three-dimensional vision is challenging, and operators of robotic systems require extensive training to enable precise navigation through three-dimensional environments using multiple two-dimensional views for feedback. This project explores the possibility of using a human arm as a master device for controlling a variety of low-cost slave robots, with the aim of reducing training times whilst providing a cheaper, more intuitive control system. Virtual Reality (VR) and haptics are used as an aid for navigation of the remote environment, whilst also providing a digital twin for the operator to enable real-time feedback from the slave robot.
