RoboPuppet is a scale-model arm of ReThink Robotics’ Baxter used for intuitive remote control. The arm contains joint angle sensors and motors which allow for gravity compensation and limited haptic feedback. The project includes a ROS package for controlling Baxter in real life and simulation, with a basic real-time GUI for calibration and debugging. This platform is ideal for helping nurses work remotely with patients in high-risk and contaminated environments.
