Collaborative Avatar Platform

Human Augmentation
No items found.

We developed a system in which two users are integrated into one actual robot arm to collaborate with each other. The method of dividing the roles allows flexible movements that is not dependent on the range of movement and rotational freedom of the human arm, and enables movements that are impossible for a single person. The mixing of movements in adjustable ratio allows an expert to support a beginner to make more stable movements, and induces collaboration between users with different perspectives. Additionally, we implement tactile feedback to enable interaction between users and between users and the robot. We investigate the effects of these on usability and cognitive behavior. This system is expected to become a new method of collaboration in the cyber-physical society.
