Mission

Towards symbiosis between humans and media, we adapt media to our perceptual and physical capabilities. Currently, we are working on adaptive telepresence.


Issue

We daily meet others in a physical space such as a room, a hallway, and a street. We know, however, few things about what kind of perceptual information contributes to the feeling of facing each other. This hinders us from designing effective digital environments for distributed face-to-face meetings. To compensate for such a lack of knowledge, we aim at clarifying the inside of telepresence.


Approach

Videoconferencing systems can provide audio-visual sensation of facing each other. Telerobots can produce embodied interaction in a remote site. Based on scientific analysis of telepresence, we try to merge these two kinds of telecommunication systems and create a new form of telepresence systems.
