Abstract

This technical paper describes the implementation of the User Interface for ProVAR, a desktop assistive rehabilitation robot. In addition to mediating interactions between the user and the real-time robot controller, the interface is responsible for the management of a world model and the high level validation of task deployment. The user may perform task planning, simulation and execution through a VRML and Java based 3D graphical representation of the workspace area and a Menu-bar command selection and edit window.
