Dear Biomch-L readers,

Further to my posting on 6 March about Paul Schenker's Sensor Fusion Meeting
during SPIE's OE/Technology '92 conference in Boston during November, the
following item from Usenet's comp.robotics might also be of interest. The
abstract submission deadline is very soon, but if anyone wishes to submit by
email, (s)he may get in touch with me: I have an email contact address.

With kind regards -- hjw.

Telemanipulator Technology
Part of SPIE's OE/Technology `92
15-20 November, 1992
Hynes Convention Center,
Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Program Chair: Hari Das, Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Program Committee: Dov Adelstein, NASA Ames Research Center,
Blake Hannaford, University of Washington,
Samuel Landsberger, Cornell University,
Sukhan Lee, USC,
Thomas Sheridan, MIT.

This program will address problems associated with technologies
developed to facilitate remote manipulation by human operators.
Target applications for these technologies include hazardous
and/or unstructured workplaces, where the task environment may
be beyond the range of direct human manipulation and sensing, and
where human sensory information processing and decision-making
skills allow telemanipulators to outperform purely autonomous

A variety of fields related to telemanipulation will be covered
in this program. In addition to hardware implementation (e.g.,
electronics and computer architectures, master-slave systems,
anthropomorphic manipulators, hand controllers, and sensors),
new telemanipulator developments in modeling, analysis and
control that help deal with communication delays and provide
stable high bandwidth operation will be considered. Other
topics such as sensory presentation to improve visualization
of remote or virtual environments, virtual environments
for operator training and time delay compensation,
man-machine interfaces for complex teleoperator system
management, and studies of operator training and performance
will also be included.

Papers in the following areas and related topics are being

- hardware implementation for telemanipulators and
telemanipulator components
- modeling, analysis, and control of telemanipulators
- telepresence and virtual environments
- sensory information processing and presentation
- man-machine systems and operator aids
- human operator training and performance evaluation
