   "Haptic Sensors and Interfaces for Interactive Dexterous Robotic Telemanipulation"

 

Abstract:

The presentation will discuss haptic sensors and human interfaces, and intelligent control algorithms for human-like multi-finger robot hands able to dexterously explore, grasp, and in-hand manipulate objects. These emergent technologies will allow the development of a new generation of remotely controlled intervention robots able to interactively perform complex tele-manipulation operations in high-risk operational environments like nuclear power stations, underwater, highly infectious rooms, robotic surgery, or war zones.

Dr. Petriu’s  Biography:

Dr. Emil M. PetriuIEEE Fellow,  is a Professor in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Ottawa, Canada.  His research interests include biology-inspired robot sensing and perception, soft computing, and human-computer interaction.
