The Design of NAO Humanoid Robot Teleoperation System


This undertaking is my individual engineering project as part of the MEng Mechatronics and Robotics course at the University of Leeds. It is a fully immersive teleoperation robotics project. This unique robotic control application enables the operator to be present from the robot's point-of-view (i.e. the user remotely perceives what robot cameras observe and all body movements are directly mapped to the humanoid, all in real-time). Such futuristic proof-of-concept opens up endless possibilities in areas that can benefit from increased human-machine interaction, including controlling search-and-rescue robots and interplanetary exploration.
