Core Technologies:

Physical Tools Platform

Using this physical tools platform, a give user can use an Oculus Rift to remotely operate various physical tools. In this particular example, a robotic arm can be controlled by using an Xbox controller to move the the arm in x, y, and z axes.

Remote Operation

Using a combination of the Xbox controller and the head-mounted display (HMD), users can remotely operate different tools from the comfort of a remote location.

Interchangeable Tools

The video example showcases a robotic arm as one of the many tools that can be used on the other end of remote operation. A number of tools will eventually integrate with this platform and will be interchangeable as needed.

Oculus Rift

The Oculus Rift was used in this particular example because it allowed us to use a combination of haptics, head & position tracking, and low judder. In the future, this platform with be compatible with other mainstream headsets.
