The ability to appreciate the sensation of force and torque that is experienced by the slave device in a teleoperator system is essential for achieving remote manipulations such as assembly and disassembly, telesurgery, and remote handling of delicate and dangerous substances. This paper describes an intelligent teleoperator system that not only provides high quality force feedback information in teleoperation but also additional information about the contact formation between the slave device and the environment is presented to the operator. This paper also discusses the design of the teleoperator system and introduces its architecture. Experimental study using the developed teleoperator system is presented that highlights its performance in real life applications.
