Mobile Grasping & Tele-Operation
My research is focussed on developing and utilizing a mobile research platform with haptic feedback enabled tele-operation. We are currently in the process of developing and integrating the various systems; a Clearpath Husky mobile platform, a UR5e arm, and custom hydraulic grippers and controllers. Going forward we are interested in exploring mobile manipulation tasks, and using augmented perception schemes to improve the tele-operation experience. Later, we will work to mount a fully custom solution on an underwater robot, using haptic feedback to aide with manipulation tasks in low visibility environments.
