Tele-immersion system, HMD, 360-degree camera, mobile robot,


In the development of large-scale systems or products, it is important to share design space as well as design data. In this study, HMD (Head Mounted Display) based personal tele-immersion system was constructed by integrating the HMD, 360-degree video camera, and remote control mobile robot. In this system, the user can look around the transmitted spherical image using the HMD and move around the remote place freely by controlling the mobile robot. From the experiments on camera control and space perception, we understood that the user can experience the remote place effectively by using the HMD together with the 360-degree camera and the mobile robot module.
