NAVIgoid on ToyohashiNow! Jan. 2013
NAVIgoid consists of master wearable robot (ProInterface with head mounted display) and intelligent mobile robot (mobile platform, stereo cameras, and laser range finders). The novelty of our idea is to engage the user into teleoperation and provide a high level of immersion through proprioceptive telepresence and tactile feedback. The developed interface allows the operator to use their body posture and gestures for controlling the mobile robot and at the same time to feel the remote object through tactile stimuli.
