MIT underwater technology research: telemanipulator developments

15 pp.
MITSG 85-27

Both safety and economic considerations severely restrict the tasks that suited divers can accomplish in undersea inspection, work and general research activities. To station people safely behind vehicle controls on the surface instead of perilously underwater, new submersibles equipped with video cameras, manipulators and work tools are being made available to the undersea community. Current work at MIT is described, and covers touch sensing, parallel link and impedance control manipulators, underwater teleoperations for space simulation and the telemanipulator system for ARGO/JASON.
