TU Delft TV: Telerobotics

From space, the Danish astronaut Andreas Mogensen remotely controlled a robotic hand and a vehicle at ESA in Noordwijk.

That demo took place last September. It was the latest demonstration of the haptic feedback technology that Dr. Andre Schiele (TU Delft and ESA) is developing for space applications. Remote control with force feedback can be used in exploration of other planets, but also when exploring the depths of the seas or other domains where humans cannot operate.
