Title: New Vistas and Challenges in Telerobotics

Telerobotics is perhaps one of the oldest fields in robotics research. From its modest beginning in 1940's when the first teleoperator was designed till the 1980’s the focus was on primarily on nuclear, aerospace and underwater applications. The advent of modern communications in the last two decades has lead to the emergence of new applications such as telesurgery, semi-autonomous telerobotics, live power line maintenance and robotics education. On the other hand, advances in bilateral controllers are the key points for master-slaves architectures, which are important in precise telemanipulation tasks. This pervasive interest has spawned the development of new controllers, estimation techniques, synchronization algorithms and new communication protocols, etc. for bilateral teleoperation. This workshop will bring together renowned experts working in emerging research directions to discuss recent advances, challenges and open problems in the field.
