Human-Robot Interaction at a distance of 1800 km

Moving objects that are in a remote location as if you’re moving the objects in the same room. SURFnet, in collaboration with University of Twente, Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center (PSNC) and Ciena demonstrated its feasibility over a transmission distance of 1800 km. The presented combination of a cutting edge all optical network, robotics, haptic feedback and high resolution video, highlights the future potential of Human-Robot interaction in fields such as e-Health, e-Culture, e-Education and other real-time collaboration areas.
