APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT AND SYSTEM INTEGRATION
Contract research and development services including concept
development, product design and prototyping, and system integration
for Virtual Environment and Remote Presence experiences.
- Virtual environments are computer-generated worlds that users may
enter and take action in via telepresence technology. For example, a
person might directly explore a molecular model, an ancient city, or
an imaginary planet and its inhabitants.
- Remote presence utilizes such technologies as head-coupled video
cameras, other remote sensing technologies, and robots to enable
people to experience and take action in real places that are
physically distant, hazardous, or inaccessible; for example, a coral
reef, a space station, or a nuclear reactor.
"TELEPRESENCE: DEVELOPING A NEW MEDIUM"
Comprehensive design studies on all aspects of telepresence
technologies, design, applications, and prospects (aka: Virtual
Reality, Artificial Reality, Virtual Environments, etc.). Examples
include: history and comparisons with other fields; review and
analysis of enabling technologies; Industry overview from research
efforts to providers; patent review; survey of applications and
markets; key research issues and challenges.

TELEPRESENCE MOBILE ROBOT
This integrated system consists of a boom-mounted monochrome or color
stereoscopic viewer, a wireless communications package, and a
self-powered mobile platform carrying a telepresence camera system and
range sensors. The three-degrees-of-freedom camera mechanism tracks
the user's head in real time, allowing the user to feel he is actually
present in the remote location.
