Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have developed a teleoperation system that allows a two-legged robot to "borrow" a human operator's physical skills to move with greater agility.
Other teleoperation systems often cannot effectively match the operator's motions to those of a robot, and they provide no physical feedback to the human teleoperator about what the robot is doing.
The Little HERMES system addresses these limitations by properly mapping human body motion to the machine while simultaneously informing the operator how closely the robot is reproducing the movement.
