11th Lunch Colloquium-The Development of the Immerse Tele-Existence Robotic systems
28 Jul 2011
We are pleased to announce that 11th Lunch Colloquium, the first of the second cycle of EIIRIS/Tenure Track Program lunch colloquia (Colloquia 2011-2012) will be held as follows:
Thursday July 28th
0:15p.m. to 1:00p.m.
Hibari Lounge （Next to Cafeteria)
The Development of the Immerse Tele-Existence Robotic systems
Telepresence robotic system allows a person to feel as if they were present at a place other than their true location.
The goal of the projects is to develop a new type of tactile interface and telepresence robotic system that can make operator of being "embodied".
The novelty of our idea is to engage the user into teleoperation and provide a high level of immersion through proprioceptive telepresence and tactile feedback.
The developed interface allows the operator to use their body posture and gestures for controlling the mobile robot and at the same time to feel the remote object through tactile stimuli.
The mobile robot senses the remote environment through Laser Range Finder. The developed algorithms allow detecting the closest object, shape, and mobility.
The sense of presence in remote environment is provided to the operator with vision (HMD), sense of touch for obstacle presentation (Belt Interface) and proprioception (trunk tilt).
The demonstration of robot navigation through ProInterface in real and virtual environment will be given.

About Lunch Colloquia:
Every 4th Thursday, a young researcher of Electronics-Inspired Interdisciplinary Research Institute (EIIRIS) presents their resent research while having lunch with students and faculties.
Everyone is welcome.
*Participants should bring their lunch.
Next 12th Lunch Colloquia is scheduled on Thursday, September 22.
Presenter: Dr Misawa.
