Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Recent technological advancements are opening new and exciting opportunities for communicating with others and visiting places remotely. These advancements include telepresence robots, moving robotic systems that allow users to virtually navigate remote environments and interact with people in these environments.

Researchers at Hanyang University and Duksung Women’s University in South Korea have recently developed a promising telepresence system based on a humanoid robot, a head mounted display, a motion transporter, a voice transporter, and a vision transporter system.

This system, introduced in a paper published in the International Journal of Social Robotics, allows to take full-body ownership of a humanoid robot’s body, thus accessing remote environments and interacting with both humans and objects in these environments as if they were physically there.
