Abstract
The Augmented Reality Tele-Manipulation Interface System (ARTEMIS) is a technological capability which grew form its conceptual predecessor - the Augmented Reality through Graphic Overlays in Sterovideo (ARGOS) TRADEMARK, developed under DCOEM sponsorship. ARTEMIS consists of a local operator site and a remote robot site. Both sites were implemented and located in the Ergonomics Teleoperation and Control Laboratory (ETC LAB) at the University of Toronto (UofT). Under the current contract, Image & Vision Systems (IVS) undertook the task to develop a local operator ARTEMIS site on an SGI Indy Workstation and to modify the operation procedure. The purpose of this task was to establish a local operator site at DCIEM, thereby facilitating easier demonstration of ARTEMIS from any site external to UofT and for the one located at DCIEM. IVS completed the task. An operator site has been successfully established at DCIEM. The following major sub-tasks/modifications have been completed: - Software porting to Indy Workstation; - Startup procedure modification; - Performance enhancements. Additional recommended enhancements to the system have been outlined.
