Aim: Superimposition of tele-robotic arm with virtual model and controlling it with the help of CAD augmented control interface through microcontroller.
1 To Fabricate the Robotic Arm and capture the remote worksite scene: The Robotic arm is to be designed and assembled with two corresponding revolute joints, actuated with Servo motors and then a webcam will capture a Real time video of Robotic Arm at remote worksite and display it to the monitor.
2 To Design a Virtual Graphic Model of a Robotic Arm: The virtual graphic model is to be designed in Python using Open CV library.
3 Interfacing and interaction of Graphic Model to the Tele-robotic Setup: for subsequent rendering and embedding of the model over the real time video to generate a CAD augmented control interface and Superimposition of the Virtual model over the Real model and then the combined image of the model is formed.
4 To perform the task: The operator will move the virtual robot arm on the CAD augmented control interface as required for the remote worksite task.
