Virtual Force Feedback teleoperation of the insectBot using optical flow

Schill, Felix; Mahony, Robert; Corke, Peter Ian; Cole, Luke


This paper proposes the use of optical flow from a moving robot to provide force feedback to an operator's joystick to facilitate collision free teleoperation. Optical flow is measured by a pair of wide angle cameras on board the vehicle and used to generate a virtual environmental force that is reflected to the user through the joystick, as well as feeding back into the control of the vehicle. We show that the proposed control is dissipative and prevents the vehicle colliding with the...[Show more]
