Abstract:Robots are becoming increasingly present in today's society. From automatic vacuum cleaners to robotic surgery, robots are everywhere. One particular kind of robot is the robotic avatar. Robot avatars are robots that users can control from a distance. As a result, the user can be at places that would normally not be possible. The robots can provide care in dangerous places, maintenance in hard-to-reach places and aid despite the distance. One technology used in robotic avatars is referred to as telemanipulation. Telemanipulation is described as ‘the capability of a human being to carry out operations in a remote environment by means of a proper robotic system’. is an online teaching platform with the goal of learning people more about telemanipulation. In order to do so, the platform offers pen casts, assignments and Do-It-Yourself (DIY) kits. This graduation project aims to develop the software for one of these DIY kits. The DIY kits are physical setups where users can experiment with the topics covered in the pen casts. The DIY kit covered in this bachelor graduation project focussed on kinesthetic telemanipulation. Within kinesthetic telemanipulation, the user feels the feedback of the forces directly in their muscles and bones.
