Breaking connection barriers.


Technology has transformed the way we interact with the real and virtual world with possible impacts on the future of space exploration, the interesting work of The Center for Robotics and Biosystems is part of the McCormick School of Engineering is at the forefront of technology tactile, combining three types of research, optical interfaces, dexterous manipulation and high-speed actuators.


The objective of creating tactile experiences so realistic that any virtual environment seems palpable, the Dex next, an anthropomorphic teleoperation platform, is a system that recreates the movements of the human upper limbs almost one by one, mapping the operator's gestures to a robotic avatar, Imagine moving your arms, hands, fingers and even your head and seeing all this replicated by a remote robot, while receiving real-time pressure and force feedback.


It's as if you were there, in control of the Bot, the Dex next minimizes latency to offer a fluid and responsive experience, in the future research will focus on improving tactile and visual feedback by providing force feedback landed on the arms and use machine learning to transfer human skills to robots.


Surface tactile sensation is another revolutionary field. The laboratory has developed a technique to create programmable tactile effects on physical surfaces such as touch screens, this is achieved by controlling shear forces at the fingertips, allowing shapes and textures to be felt on Virtual environments and actuators are essential in any robotic system, providing the necessary movement.


The goal is to develop millimeter-scale actuators that offer great force and displacement simultaneously, overcoming current limitations; When it comes to teleoperation, communication delays can make the experience less intuitive, so the form-based remote manipulation system uses models to overcome these delays, allowing real-time interactions with the Avatar's environment, rather than Waiting for feedback from the physical world the operator interacts with a physics-based model making everything more efficient.

And now a look at the future.


This technology can break barriers not only on earth but also in other worlds, imagine controlling robots on Mars, on the moon Europa or even outside our solar system, one day technology will advance to such a point that robots will be sent out of earth to Mars or the moon Europa and who knows maybe even outside our solar system in Alpha Centauri, for example, and from this beautiful planet, humans will control these machines as if they were present there going even further, perhaps building habitats for that we can colonize and live in other worlds.
