The properties of an object, such as size, shape or texture, can determine how the object can be used as a tool. Tool use is a developmental achievement that occurs during childhood, and it enables children to meet accomplish tasks. In order for children to determine tool use they must explore objects which requires reaching, grasping or lifting the objects. When children are not able to reach, grasp, lift or manipulate objects due to physical disabilities they may not be able to explore or perceive object properties. Robots controlled through a teleoperation system allow a person to move, sense and manipulate objects at a distance and could be a means through which children with physical disabilities can explore object properties using a joystick. This study aims to determine if a robotic teleoperation system with haptic feedback allows adults, typically developing children and children with disabilities to recognize object properties in order to use them as tools as well as compare how object manipulation may differ when they use the system.
