iPresence advocates Teleportation as a Service (TaaS) as a business concept. TaaS is the concept of providing a service that allows you to exist remotely as if you were teleported anywhere in the world.With the development of the Internet and the continuing remarkable progress of various technologies, including robot technology, we are working every day to implement social implementations of experiences that make it feel as if you are actually there. I'm here.
We will collaborate with local governments, support organizations, academic institutions, etc. to further enhance the teleportation experience by using telepresence avatar robot solutions that are practical rather than new promotions, and digital twin technology that complements them. While developing applications and products that match the industry and scene, we are promoting the realization of TaaS.
This time, together with Ricoh, who agreed with the TaaS concept, we developed [Avatar360 with RICOH THETA], an application that utilizes the Live Streaming service provided by Ricoh and RICOH THETA.This application not only connects sites in real time, but also realizes a more extended teleportation experience compared to conventional applications.

By installing RICOH THETA, which supports 4K* and 360-degree images, in temi, a self-propelled telepresence avatar robot (hereinafter referred to as "tele robot") provided by iPresence, we solved the problem of being able to see only a limited area. In a visually stress-free environment, you can freely walk around and enjoy remote communication while experiencing the feeling of being there and a unique sense of immersion.
In addition, WebRTC technology makes it easy to access and use from a general browser, so there is no need to download apps or troublesome settings.

The 360-degree video of RICOH THETA is operated by directing it to the place you want to see with the arrow pointer on the PC screen.
Temi can freely walk around the site by operating the cross key displayed at the bottom right of the screen.
The screen ratio of RICOH THETA and temi can be changed by clicking RICOH THETA or temi in the center right of the screen, so you can enjoy both remote communication and 360-degree images depending on the time. I'm here.
