In an ideal case telepresence achieves a state, where a human operator can no longer dierentiate between an interaction with a real environment or a technical mediated one. This state is called transparent telepresence. The applicability of telepresence to on-orbit servicing (OOS), i.e. an unmanned servicing operation in space, teleoperated from ground in… (More)
The video shows a rich multi-modal multiuser telepresence system, which was developed within the SFB453 funded by the German Research Foundation (www.sfb453.de). As a complex application scenario, the remote repairing of a broken pipe is presented, see Fig. 1.
In a telemanipulation system a human operator controls a remotely located teleoperator by a human system interface. In this work the effects of varied human movement control on task performance and feeling of telepresence by using such systems are analyzed. While it is well known that humans are able to coordinate and integrate multiple degrees of freedom… (More)
