Session: [WeC12] Motion Control of Manipulators
Robot Telekinesis lets the user remotely control the end effector of a 6-DOF robot arm, using unimanual and bimanual hand gestures that resemble handling a physical object. It is quantitatively and qualitatively compared to teaching pendant and direct teaching. It is as fast and intuitive as direct teaching, without the need for physical contact or effort.
