Using the new Xbox One Kinect sensor, we are able to manipulate the JACO robot arm in real time. By combining position tracking from the Kinect and rotational tracking with the Oculus, we provide a first-person view for the operator. Future work will include integrating sensor array data into the scene and translating our research to the Robonaut 2 humanoid on the International Space Station.
The Operations Lab creates the software that is used to command all JPL spacecraft (like Curiosity rover), ranging from desktop to AR and VR systems. The Human Interfaces (HI) group researches, designs, prototypes and develops the ways users interact with these systems.
