dc.description.abstractTelerobotics is a field of robotics interested in controlling robots from a distance. Incorporating visual and haptic (touch) feedback allows the operator greater accuracy in manipulating objects in a remote environment. This project endeavours to develop a telerobotic system with a focus towards telesurgical applications by using two similar industrial robotic manipulators, one acting as a haptic input device, the other as the telerobot. This paper describes the process of converting such robots into a functioning telerobotic system that allows the operator to “see” and “feel” in the remote environment. A partial working model of the telerobotic system can be achieved through experimental procedures.en_ZA
