ABSTRACT
SeaMaster is a software package developed for computer-assisted telemanipulation to upgrade the man/machine interface of the traditional direct telemanipulation. Some features implemented for realistic simulation and actual teleoperation include the capabilities for collision detection, force reflection, and pick- and-place operations. The movement of the actual and simulated manipulators can be controlled separately or simultaneously using a rate-control or master-slave control modes of operation. These were implemented by interfacing actual control devices to the computer. A data-driven control mode is also implemented by solving the manipulator inverse kinematics in closed-form. Although designed for underwater telemanipulators, SeaMaster can be used for supervisory control of standalone robotic systems and to provide embedded training for teleoperators.
