Cybernet's Wearable OCU

PROJECT MISSION

This project developed a design for a wearable operator control interface for man-portable robotic applications. Typically, the controller guides small, man-packable robots for tactical missions, such as reconnaissance in enclosed spaces like sewer tunnels. In military parlance, it is a "first man in" situation, where the robot relays video information back to the operator. The Operator Control Unit (OCU) also controls movement of the robot. Since this is a tactical situation, the OCU allows the soldier to be free to carry out other duties without undo hindrance. It is especially important that the soldier remain free to perform battle tasks while operating the control system. The OCU displays video information and other status information (direction of travel, velocity, tilt angle, etc).
