ROS 3D Entries: Nao Teleop Control

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Halit Bener SUAY entered the ROS 3D contest with this entry that demonstrates teleoperation of an Aldebaran Nao using a Kinect. This is the not the only entry to tackle teleoperation, but it adds its own unique twists. Most notably, there are pre-defined gestures that enable the operator to switch between different modes of control. One leg controls starting and stopping the robot. Another enables the operator to switch between controlling the body and the head. Your arms can either directly control the robot arms are issue other commands, like directing the robot's gaze. All-in-all, it's a great demo of how we can go completely remoteless and still control a complex, walking robot like the Nao.
