Time Follower's Vision
An innovative visual presentation system, Time Follower's Vision uses mixed-reality technology to produce a virtual image of a vehicle and its attitude.
This system enhances human abilities to control machines.
The ultimate goal is a practical application: a control interface for rescue robots.
In events like the Kobe Great Earthquake or the September 11 attack, where search and rescue of the victims must be carried out as quickly as possible, this visual presentation system could save lives. Even without a well-trained operator, if the robot's current position and environment can be displayed, the rescue operation can be performed more efficiently and effectively.
The key innovation is application of imaged-based rendering and 3D graphics to produce a virtual rear viewpoint from a single camera, which improves maneuverability of robotic vehicles.
