1. A robotic assembly control system comprising:
an exoskeleton apparatus adapted to be worn by a user comprising at least one tactor motor;
at least one robotic assembly, separate from the exoskeleton, the at least one robotic assembly controlled by the user by way of the exoskeleton;
at least one mobile platform controlled by the user and separate from the exoskeleton and wherein the at least one robotic assembly is attached to the at least one mobile platform,
wherein the at least one tactor motor provides feedback related to torque of the shoulder joint on the at least one robotic assembly.
