Luleå University of Technology
LuSAR has recently been teleoperated from Norway, Australia and Singapore.
(The picture shows the robot at a forestry conference in Garpenberg).
The communication user interface was
written in Java as a demonstration of the teleoperation.
The picture shown to the right is a screen
shot taken in SIngapore while controlling the robot in Luleå. The
bottom shows a laser range scan, the rectangle in the middle is the robot,
about one meter long. Each dot (small circle) is a range measurement. The
photo in the upper right corner of the picture is updated much slower than
the range image, in practice a new picture is acquired only when demanded
by the operator. The yellow and blue image is a "virtual reality" projection
the planar range measurements. The two people visible in the images are
professor Åke Wernersson and PhD student Mats
