Collaborative mechanical CAD applications, as well as different medical applications, are two that will benefit significantly. In this work, we give a general, structured principle to describe the conceptual part of any tele-immersion system.
When participants are tele-immersed, they are able to see and interact with each other and objects in a shared virtual environment.
The platform is portable and can be easily deployed and operated as a local TI capturing station as it is also low-cost in terms of equipment by using consumer grade vision sensors.
Asteriadis, D. Alexiadis, S. In the case of medical applications such as teleradiology and urgent diagnostics, the availability of such technologies in the places that are physically inaccessible to specialists could potentially save the lives.
Weit, U. Louizis, K.May On-the-fly 3D reconstruction using four Microsoft Kinect v2. Phan, D. Doumanoglou, N. Alvarez, D. There are several applications that will profit from tele-immersive systems. When participants are tele-immersed, they are able to see and interact with each other and objects in a shared virtual environment. Doumanoglou, D. Imagine a party of friends emplaced into the virtual environment simulating the Athenian Acropolis, taking an exciting tour along with their guide into this cultural re-enactment, or a tele-learning environment where an expert is tele-immersed in a simulated factory environment to teach a party of workers how to operate some newly acquired machine types.
Zioulis, E. It allows widely separated people to share a complex virtual experience. Some of the main applications are as follows: Tele-immersive systems have potential to significantly change educational, scientific and manufacturing paradigms.
Restaurants fitted with tele-immersion booths will enable people far away from home to have dinner with their family. This focus on technology makes it difficult to compare systems' concepts; moreover, it has led to different views on tele-immersion in different fields, such as remotely controlled robots, immersive video conferencing, and tele-collaboration.
