Abstract— In this paper, we investigate the efficiency of cooperative work between remote robot systems with force feedback by experiment. In the system, a user can manipulate a remote industrial robot having a force sensor by using a haptic interface device while watching video. In our experiment, the user hands over (or receives) an object with an electric hand of an industrial robot arm to (or from) that of the other industrial robot arm. We also compare the efficiency with that in cooperative work between a user and the remote robot system. Experimental results illustrate that the cooperative work between the systems generates larger force than that between the system and the user.
