Multi touch controller
Researchers at the University of Massachusetts in Lowell are creating a system that will allow operators of unmanned vehicles to control devices through a multi-touch tablet, rather than a joystick. By creating an alternate interface, the lab hopes to create a way to use robots in disaster response scenarios where multiple robots can be remotely controlled from a tablet or Microsoft Surface computer.
