Vincent Lepetit (Labri, France)
This XR4ALL Special Interest Group (SIG) focuses on the technological and social challenges that remain to be solved to make telepresence and teleoperation supported by AR and VR happen in a near future.
We believe that telepresence has the potential to be a key component in reducing carbon footprint, and other transport-related challenges (traffic jams, road infrastructures, etc.). By saving time, it can also make processes more efficient or even save lives. The remaining challenges to reach this goal are at least two-fold: (1) Technological, with aspects including network bandwidth and reliability, registration, visualisation, and (2) sociological, for the acceptance by companies and by the end-users.
