  1. This video shows my MSc Robotics, Baxter teleportation project, at Plymouth University. A Geomagic Haptic Feedback Controller, is used to control the position of the robot's right end effector; and also provides force feedback to the operator, so that they can sense when the end effector is near an object, or feel the firmness/consistency of an object in the end effector's grippers, from the output of an FSR (Force Sensing Resistor) mounted on the inside of one gripper pincer; via the force feedback controller. A Kinect v2 gives the operator visual feedback of the robot's workspace; this position of which can be controlled via an Oculus Rift DK2 VR headset (from the position of the headset's builtin-in IMU). Kinect v2 colour images are displayed on the headset's screen to give the operator an immersive experience when controlling the robot arm; the operator also has the option to switch views from the Kinect v2 output, to the output of a camera built into Baxter's cuff (above the end effector). The operator should be able to control the robot arm as naturally as using their own arm to interact with objects within an environment; this project aim to achieve this goal.
