This paper presents the design and operation of a new teleoperation testbed currently under investigation at the Georgia Institute of Technology. This laboratory will enable researchers to investigate a wide range of issues concerning nuclear waste restoration. The focus of the project is to determine what factors effect the performance of human interaction in teleoperation. These factors include an investigation of various robot control algorithms, the effect of unilateral and bilateral information flow, the role of compliance oflong reach arms in teleoperation, and the influence of various queues in training and performance. Experiments and preliminary results concentrating on the significance of audible sounds in teleoperation are presented.
