A high-resolution, wide-angle, distortion-free video capture and projection system composed of nine rear-projection screens.

Large moving optics display.

Potential NONA-Vision applications include:
  • Tele-operation. A wide-angle image is useful for tele-operation of a remote robot. Scenes of unknown environments are difficult to recognize with the narrow field of view available in a conventional camera-head. NONA-Vision provides a good sense of presence in the remote site.
  • Virtual travel. NONA-Vision enables virtual travel with a sense of presence in remote locations. This remote presence can be very valuable for handicapped or aged people who have trouble traveling in real spaces.
