A new article on how user interfacing is being redefined through the emergence and convergence of various new technologies has been published on Robolliance.com expert corner.
Dr. Komsuoglu has received patent US2011/0320042A1 for his earlier work in American Android Corp. This work outlines two key technologies developed for a multi-arm manipulator system: a procedure by which video feeds collected from multiple appendage mounted cameras are combined; and a mechanism that provides selectable command frame of reference. The combination of these two methods give rise to a significantly improved user experience and reduce operator fatigue. These methods were demonstrated on MA-UGV platform.
