Use case 3: Tactile Robot Teleoperation

Lead Partner: Tyndall National Institute, IE

The Tactile Robot constitutes the next generation of soft collaborative robots, equipped with sensing capabilities to process humanlike tactile sensation.  Human safety and labor/skill shortages in industry will be improved dramatically, as potentially dangerous or complex operations involving inspection, repair, or even decommissioning, will be performed by a remotely controlled Tactile Robot.


Use case 3 will implement safe remote teleoperation via a tactile robot. Human in the loop will be considered through complex HMI coupled with a digital twin representation of the process implemented in virtual reality. The application will be enabled with high performance AI embedded close to the edge, mitigating motion control errors introduced as a result of sensor and user input limitations.
