In this paper we present a novel wearable suit for haptic feedback capabilities at user’s hands combined with upper body motion tracking. In the work we present both the system design and the algorithms used for motion tracking and haptic rendering. The overall system was applied to the co-located tele-operation of the Baxter research robot to perform manipulative tasks usually carried out by human personnel in the industry.
