Abstract:This thesis was part of the i-Botics project. It is founded as an independent research center by TNO and University of Twente. The research is mainly concerned with interaction robotics, namely telerobotics and exoskeletons. Telerobotics deals with remote controlled robots. These robots are send to remote location without the operator of the robot being present. Telepresence and teleoperations are used to allow the operator to control the robot with remote presence. To achieve this remote presence for the operator, several technological approaches can be used. Haptics is one of these. This thesis was a design oriented project within the telerobotics research field of i-Botics. The goal of this thesis was to create a haptic interface between a robotic hand (ReFlex TakkTile) - mounted on a remotely controlled robot - and the control unit for the user (Omega 7 Haptic Device). This haptic interface is created to allow the user to do remote manipulation. This should allow for interaction with objects which are in the remote environment.
