Abstract:An Omni-directional wheel based platform is to be tele-operated from an omega.6 haptic device and the implementation of an obstacle detection system is required to aid the user in navigating through, in most cases, an out of sight environment. The system is required to let the user perceive the robot’s location, surroundings and status in ways that are easily comprehended and require little to no hesitation in processing (situational awareness). In this work, the use of a layered ranging system for the platform is the approach for the obstacle detection system. The second range which is implemented in this project creates awareness through detecting and ranging obstacles and sends this data as haptic cues through the haptic device. A user’s study response revealed the added value that the haptic feedback offers from providing environmental awareness to the user and enhancing the tele operation experience.
