Researchers from Keio University’s Tachi Lab in Tokyo have developed a system that lets a human operator feel the objects, which a remote controlled robot is touching. The TELESAR V is the fifth generation of TELExistence Surrogate Anthropomorphic Robots created by Prof. Susumu Tachi, who defines telexistence as a system that would let people have a highly realistic sensation of existence in a remote place without travelling. The operator will be able to experience all the robot’s out-of-body sensations at the same time in a different location due to its human-like movements in the upper body and ability to see, hear and feel. To see whatever the robot sees, a person controlling TELESAR V has to wear a virtual reality headset and gloves. As they move their arms, the robot moves its arms, when the robot’s fingers touch an object the operator can ‘feel’ the shape of the object. The system is really stunning and will soon provides humanity with ample opportunity.
