Along with the progress of robot technologies, industrial robot manipulators have been employed for more versatile tasks. Consequently, the teaching pendant or keyboard may not meet the need of delicate manipulation. Intuitive manipulation and friendly human-robot interface are thus demanded. In this paper, we propose a novel manipulation system based on using augmented reality (AR) technique and implement it on a tablet PC. We also equip the system with a visual lead-through function, among others. Experiments are performed to demonstrate its effectiveness, along with questionnaire conducted to evaluate user response.
