INTERACTIVE MANIPULATION BETWEEN A HUMAN AND A HUMANOID, WHEN ROBOTS CONTROLE HUMAN ARM

by Miryam Muller in ,


This was bound to happen someday. After all our ridiculous telecommunicating platforms, remote drones, and general toying with robots as play things–robots can control us now.

This new chapter for human-robot interaction came from an experiment ran by a group of French researchers of the Montpellier Laboratory of Informatics, Robotics, and Microelectronics (LIRMM). In the experiment, a Fujitsu’s HOAP-3 humanoid robot controlled a person’s arm using electrodes to drop a ball into the robot’s hoop.
