underwater excavator, teleoperation, haptic image

In the teleoperation of construction machinery, the work situation is usually determined from images shown on several screens. However, because images displayed on screens are flat, information presented is poor compared to information obtained with the naked eye, such as the view angle, resolution, and depth information. Focusing on information presentation during the teleoperation of construction machinery, this report investigates information presentation methods in mound-leveling work, grasping work, and drilling positioning conditions.
