  Long Distance Teleoperation (Avatar)

Operators in Arlington, VA used Avatar’s immersive 3D teleoperation interface to drive a vehicle located in San Diego.

 

Overview

The Avatar project successfully teleoperated an unmanned ground vehicle in California over a satellite link from a base station near Washington, DC.

Avatar’s intuitive teleoperation interface compensates for distance-related communications latency.  Operators saw a 60% improvement in speed, controllability, and driving errors with Avatar over a standard teleoperation interface, which did not compensate for latency. 

This technology allows operators to drive robots at higher speeds and with greater safety at nearly unlimited stand-off distances, opening new applications for robotics.
