Abstract
The feasibility of providing vibrotactile information to humans in a teleoperated robotic system were investigated. Four channels of vibrotactile feedback were given to a human operator to relay force information from a teleoperated dextrous robotic hand. Significant advantage was seen when the operator was provided one or two channels of feedback.
