View : 5756 Date : 2016-11-08 Writer : ed_news

Research Professor Ilhan Bae of the Moon Soul Graduate School of Future Strategy at KAIST created a life-size humanoid robot on a drone platform, which gives users the experience of virtual flight and an opportunity to interact with people at remote locations. Professor Bae calls his new creation a "telepresence robot."

 

This avatar drone is a new application of drone and robotics technology, which extends the reach of human presence and mobility, Professor Bae explained his research.

 

“As a futurist, I forecast that drone technology will soon evolve to become another body for humans, and I wanted to demonstrate this potential application of drones. Avatar drones are especially useful for people who need to meet or manage other people face to face in remote locations,” he said.

 

For example, if elderly people with physical disabilities want to engage in social gatherings, this avatar drone is designed to help them do just that.
