"TELESAR V" is a system enables a user to bind with a dexterous robot and experience what robot can feels from its fingertip when manipulating and touching objects remotely and enable the user to perceive the same haptic sensation.
Operator can clearly see the remote environment and robot hands through a Head Mounted Display and hear what the robot can hear in the remote location. With human-like movements in the upper body, arm and hands in TELESAR V, and ability to see, hear, feel the haptic sensation at the same time in a different location, enables the operator to experience the out-of-body illusion.
Operator can feel the tactile sensation of glass ball pouring from one cup to another and haptic sensation when touching a uneven surface. Further more the operator can feel the robots fingertip temperature sensation which makes it really a multi-sensory feeling.
"TELESAR V" is a continuation of the previous Telexistence research in Tachilab.
