Mediators: virtual haptic interfaces for tele-operated robots

This paper develops the concept of mediators: virtual interfaces with haptic feedback for teleoperation. Our approach is to replace physical operator interfaces by fully parameterizable adaptive virtual interfaces. Mediators open new possibilities for multimodal feedback for control interfaces. We apply mediators in the context of teleoperation of robots. The implemented prototype shows the feasibility of using virtual haptic interfaces to drive robots remotely
