MITRE Immersive Vision System (MIVS)
Telepresence technologies rely on sensory input and an advanced graphical interface to give the user the impression that he or she is actually inside a made-up environment. The MITRE Immersive Vision System (MIVS) integrates commercial components with software created by MITRE's scientists. It uses a commercial hemispherical digital camera system and a head-mounted display. An orientation sensor, is attached to the display tracks the position of the user's head while allowing the person to move around in any direction. A wireless signal is sent from the head-tracking device to the hemispherical camera on the robot to control its position.
