Originally generated from Greek world 'haptikos', haptic technology is used in many grasping and robotic applications. Commercially, it is widely known solution in videogames and mobile technology. Essentially, haptics is used in medical robots, where the surgeon is located outside of the sterile area and remotely operates vide a direct video connection the robot manipulators, which are holding endoscopes and working elements. Haptics has proven its worth especially for minimal and non-invasive surgical procedures, where the patient care coefficient has increased. As it is directly related to human existence, artifacts may be as sensitive as human life and need extreme care to last for the next generations. Here we could see a possibility to combine haptics with the maintenance of the monuments. In this paper we represent mathematically a haptic robotic concept for artefact maintenance purposes.
