Minimalist Humanoid Robot That Physically Represents A Remote User

Telenoid R1

Researchers from Osaka University and the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute (ATR) have developed Telenoid R1, a minimalist humanoid robot that physically represents the presence of a remote user.

The term Telenoid is a new term coined from a prefix Tele-, as Telephone and Teleoperation, and the Latin postfix -oides which indicates similarity, as Humanoid. Using Telenoids, we will investigate the essential elements for representing and transferring humanlike presence. In practical usage, we expect Telenoid to be used as a new communication media,
