1. From Teleoperators to Robots Development of machines and interfaces
2. Teleoperation History and applications
3. Definition Teleoperation means simply to operate a vehicle or a system over a distance Distance can vary from tens of centimeters (micro manipulation) to millions of kilometers (space applications)
4. Teloperation Robotics HMI The 1 st mobile machines without human onboard were teleoperators the first pre- stage of a robot How to control a vehicle over a distance? Phased development from mechanical manipulation to high level supervisory control Today both closed loop teleoperation and high level communication are needed
5. Robot teleoperation Basicly every mobile robot is a teleoperated machine and most of the teleoperated machines are mobile robots, only level of autonomy varies Robot HMI = teleoperation interface Fully autonomous robots ??
6. Vision - forestry
7. Definition - consideration The earliest type of teleoperation? What is the difference between using a tool and teleoperation (remote manipulation)
8. Tool or Teleoperation Tool to improve the work task, to make something possible Teleoperation to avoid hostile environment, usually neither the quality nor the efficiency of the work is improved
9. Development manipulation vehicle (submarine) control space Semiautonomous vehicles Autonomous vehicles (no closed loop teleoperation needed)
10. Terminology Teleoperation: to operate a vehicle or a system over a distance Operator : human operator is the person who monitors the operated machine and makes the needed control actions Teleoperator: is the teleoperated machine. A sophisticated teleoperator can also be called as telerobot In supervisory control remarkable part of the control is delegated to the teleoperator end (compare coordinated teleoperation)
11. Terminology Robot: Any automatically operated machine that replaces human effort, though it may not resemble human beings in appearance or perform functions in a humanlike manner. The term is derived from the Czech word robota, meaning forced labor. [Encyclopedia Britannica]
12. Definitions Mechanical manipulation The control commands are transmitted mechanically or hydraulically to the teleoperator. Visual feedback can be straight or via monitor. This is typical for manipulation of dangerous materials as well as micro manipulation
13. Definitions Remote operation/control: The operator has most of the time straight visual contact to the controlled target. Control commands are send electrically by wire or radio
14. Definitions Normal or standard teleoperation Wireless control and visual feedback via camera monitor system
15. Definitions Closed loop control (Direct teleoperation): The operator controls the actuators of the teleoperator by direct (analog) signals and gets real-time feedback. This is possible only when the delays in the control loop are minimal. Coordinated teleoperation: The operator again controls the actuators, but now there is some internal control - remote loop - included. However, there is no autonomy included in the remote end. The remote loops are used only to close those control loops that the operator is unable to control because of the delay.
16. Example: Arska Commercial ATV Servo actuators in throttle steering brake gear Computer control Teleoperation over radio modem Today all control via computer!!!
17. Definitions In supervisory control [Sheridan, 1992], the remarkable part of the control is to be found in the teleoperator end (compare coordinated teleoperation). The teleoperator can now perform part of the tasks more or less autonomously, while the operator mainly monitors and gives high-level commands. The term task based teleoperation is sometimes used here, but it is more limited than "supervisory control".
18. Closed loop/Supervisory control
19. History The first modern master - slave teleoperators were mechanical pantographs. These manipulators were developed by the group of R. Goertz in the late 1940s at the Argonne National Laboratory where Enrico Fermi developed the first nuclear reactor
20. History The mechanical manipulators were soon replaced by electro mechanical servos In 1954 Goertzs team developed the first electro mechanical manipulator with feedback servo control. After this the teleoperation of manipulators and vehicles spread out rapidly to new branches where advantages of teleoperation techniques could be utilized.
21. Applications S ubmarines (ROV)
22. Applications Space Perfect for teleoperation: safety and costs problem very long delay => move and wait
23. Applications Military underwater ground air semiautonomous / closed loop control Anti terrorist typically closed loop control
24. Applications Medical Endoscopic surgery ~ (micro) mechanical manipulation (is this teleoperation??) minimal damage, smaller risks Telesurgery Specialists can operate over distances
25. Applications Industrial Mining Resque operations Mining in unsafe areas
26. Industrial applications Why to teleoperate if there is no danger?? Semiautonomous work machines with part time teleoperation!! All possible work is done autonomously Difficult tasks and exceptions are teleoperated This will be the future!!
27. Technology Mechanical manipulators, (good feedback) Electrical servos TV, (closed loop) Radio control Video, (closed loop, supervisory)
28. Problems Video transmission Big amount of data Need for digital transmission Delay, delay , delay , delay , delay, Control transmission Fast response for control actions Delay, delay , delay , delay , delay,
29. DELAY signal speed max. 300 000km/s Shannon theory: measuring frequency > 2 x system frequency In practise (mobile machines) < 0,1s => perfect, < 0,5s = > easy In long delay systems move and wait task based teleopration
30. Delay There are always delays in a teleoperation loop Every part of the system has some delays Digital systems increased the delay Control delay teleoperator delay transmission delay feedback delay
31. Long delay teleoperation No possibilities for closed loop control because of the mission its difficult to increase the autonomy => move and wait teleoperation models of robot and environment, operator loop in control operator loop
