These teleoperated robots are remotely controlled with a new VR system. Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) developed a system consisting of an Oculus Rift headset and hand controllers that enables users to teleoperate a robot. The teleoperated robots have multiple sensory displays, which offer pilots great amounts of accuracy from a long distance.
This technology could have a significant impact on the manufacturing industry as it would let employees operate machines and perform tasks from anywhere in the world. SpringWise states "the future of work could soon see the ability for manufacturing blue-collar workers to carry out tasks remotely by wirelessly controlling machines in their real-life factory space."
