A Touchscreen Interface for Controlling a Robotic Arm (2013)

A Touchscreen Interface for Controlling a Robotic Arm (2013)

In this project, we designed a touchscreen interface for the remote control of a multi-degree of freedom robot arm to reduce task load and fatigue. We conducted a controlled user study to compare our interface to an existing commercial keypad interface. Results of this study suggested that our interafce was easier to use, required less cognitive task load, and enabled people to complete tasks more quickly.
