Customizing haptic and visual feedback for assistive human-robot interface and the effects on performance improvement

Source:Robotics and Autonomous Systems Author(s): Han U. Yoon, Ranxiao F. Wang, Seth A. Hutchinson, Pilwon Hur This paper presents an approach to developing an assistive interface for human–robot interaction that provides users with the customized haptic and visual feedback. The developed interface targets to improve users’ task performance by customizing assistance policy and level based on users’ performance and control strategy. To achieve this, the users’ control strategy was modeled …Read More

Collaborative robotics for aeronautical inspection

IK4-TEKNIKER is leading the European project CRO-INSPECT whose aim is to improve aircraft flap inspection practices by means of collaborative robotics and ultrasound techniques. The incorporation of composite materials to the aeronautic business used to build lighter, less polluting and more energy-efficient aircraft requires that sophisticated inspection techniques be implemented for materials or parts in order to detect any potential failures by means of non-destructive testing. With the ultimate aim …Read More
