Abstract

Force feedback in current teleoperation systems typically only provides haptic/kinaesthetic feedback to operators in the form of normal forces. However, it is proposed in this paper that the introduction of shear (or lateral) force feedback to operators’ fingertips may provide an enhanced degree of control in manipulating remote objects for a wide variety of applications. A lightweight and wearable prototype device is developed and tested to demonstrate this hypothesis.
