Abstract:In this paper, a study is presented on social interaction through a tele-operation system, particularly handshake activity. The study includes investigation of the handshake aspects involved in the human-human handshake scenario, designing a bilateral control system, and evaluation of the developed handshake system. The proposed bilateral control scheme was tested by reusing a variable-stiffness interaction control of which the stiffness varies according to the operator anatomical arm stiffness using EMG sensor. The control design was validated by an objective transparency evaluation. The developed robotic handshake system was also subjectively evaluated through assessing the user experience about the handshake interaction. The results show that even though some hardware limitations are present, the system seems to be capable of providing the human with genuine engaging handshake experience.
