ARQ: Advanced Robotics at Queen Mary


Human-Robot Interaction

Topics:  telerobotics - robots for virtual reality - haptic interfaces


We explore human-machine interfaces for efficient and safe remote control of various robotic systems including mobile robots,  surgical manipulators, robot-manipulators operating in extreme environments. We develop and evaluate advanced graphical users interfaces, virtual reality environments and haptic interfaces for telerobotic systems.

Robotics for Virtual Reality

We create novel robotic interfaces for virtual reality applications. This includes development of wearable haptic systems, tracking devices and mechatronic systems for navigation in virtual scenes.

Haptic Interfaces

One of the key topic at our centre is development of novel haptic interfaces for rendering various sensations of touch. We use different technologies for haptic rendering which include electromagnetic vibrotactile actuation, ultrasound, soft robotics.
