Abstract:

This Users Guide specifies the procedures for operating the Force- reflecting Interfaces to Telemanipulators Testing System FITTS at the Harry G. Armstrong Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory. The report first describes each FITTS subsystem the American Cimflex Merlin 6500 robots, the MB Associates exoskeleton, the AFNavy Teleoperator Performance Evaluation Battery, and the control computers. After providing step by step procedures for initializing each subsystem, this Users Guide describes how to operate FITTS either by telemanipulation or by computer control. Next the report presents the process used to analyze experimental data collected with FITTS. Finally a section is provided which describes error recovery steps to be used with FITTS.
