If we could have the capability to edit or customize our body scheme by technology, could our abilities and activities be enhanced? This research proposes a novel interaction to alternate body scheme using artificial limbs substitution metamorphosis. In this work, two additional robotic arms are added to user’s body, and are manipulated by legs movement. […]

In this paper, we analyze the subjective feelings about the body of the operator of a telexistence system. We investigate whether a mirror reflection and self-touch affect body ownership and agency for a surrogate robot avatar in a virtual reality experiment. Results showed that the presence of tactile sensations synchronized with the view of self-touch […]

Twech is a mobile platform that enables users to share visuo-tactile experience and search other experiences for tactile data. User can record and share visuo-tactile experiences by using a visuo-tactile recording and displaying attachment for smartphone, allows the user to instantly such as tweet, and re-experience shared data such as visuo-motor coupling. Further, Twech’s search […]

This paper presents a study of using supernumerary arms experience in virtual reality applications. In this study, a system was developed that alternates user’s body scheme and motion mapping in real-time when the user interacts with virtual contents. User arms and hands are tracked and mapped into several virtual arms instances that were generated from […]

We propose “Layered Telepresence”, a novel method of experiencing simultaneous multi-presence. Users eye gaze and perceptual awareness are blended with real-time audio-visual information received from multiple telepresence robots. The system arranges audio-visual information received through multiple robots into a priority-driven layered stack. A weighted feature map was created based on the objects recognized for each […]

In this paper, a spatial coherent remote driving system was designed and implemented to operate a telexistence backhoe over a wireless network. Accordingly, we developed a 6 degrees of Freedom (DOF) slave robot that can mimic the human upper body movement; a cockpit with motion tracking system and a Head Mounted Display (HMD) where the […]

In this paper, a mobile telexistence system that provides mutual embodiment of user’s body in a remote place is discussed. A fully mobile slave robot was designed and developed to deliver visual and motion mapping with user’s head and body. The user can access the robot remotely using a Head Mounted Display (HMD) and set […]

We propose an indirect-vision, video-see-through augmented reality (AR) cockpit that uses telexistence technology to provide an AR enriched, virtually transparent view of the surroundings through monitors instead of windows. Such a virtual view has the potential to enhance driving performance and experience above conventional glass as well as head-up display equipped cockpits by combining AR […]

In this paper, a new sports genre, “Aerial Sports” is introduced where the humans and robots collaborate to enjoy space as a whole new field. By integrating a flight unit with the user’s voluntary motion, everyone can enjoy the crossing physical limitations such as height and physique. The user can dive into the drone by […]
