Telemanipulation Systems, Hazardous Environment
Definition : Telemanipulation systems designed to handle objects in hazardous (e.g., radioactive, vacuum, contaminated) environments. These systems typically consist of robotic arms that replicate the operator's hand movements; a workstation that may include a video display, control arms similar to those that perform the actual manipulation, and an electronic control module; and links (e.g., coaxial cable) that connect the remote robotic arms to the workstation. Hazardous-environment telemanipulation systems are used in closed rooms or cabinets that may be an environmental risk for a human operator.
