Abstract

The ability to teleoperate a mobile vehicle over the internet is a difficult task. Many sensory signals must be processed by the user in order to make an informed and safe vehicle-guiding decision. So much so, that the interface design is often the downfall of an otherwise capable mobile robot. A good interface should be able to relieve the user of some of the visual sensor strain and still result in a safely controlled mobile platform. The research detailed in thesis first, describes the construction of a reliable and sensor rich platform for remote vehicle control. Then an interface is developed that adds haptic sensing to divert some of the strain from the operator, resulting in an easy-to-drive remote vehicle application.
