The research conducted concerns development of a system to
telecontrol a robot. This consists of:
a control station where the teleoperator pilots the
movements of the remote robot by means of a mouse and three telecameras.
operating station consisting of a communication control
processor and a robot
The research was conducted using:
- a telecontrol station
- an MS-DOS compatible personal computer
- a National Instruments LabWindows language
- an IBM 7575 robot
- an AML language
This system was used at the Roma Chirurgia '92 congress by
telecontrolling a robot located in an operating theatre at the Policlinico
Umberto I in Rome from Milan.
Developments concern improvement of the telecontrol software and hardware and
the use of satellite communications (a test has already been conducted at the
Spino D'Adda centre with positive results).
