Real-time Human Proxy: An Avatar-based Communication System

Daisaku Arita (Institute of Systems and Information Technologies/KYUSHU, Japan)

Abstract: We propose a concept of real-time human proxy for avatar-based communication systems, which virtualizes a human in the real world in real-time and which lets the virtualized human behave as if he/she was present at a distant place. For estimating RHP, we apply it to a simple game and a virtual classroom system. The experimental results shows us that RHP is useful for avatar-based communication.

Keywords: avatar-based communication, motion capture, motion generation, virtual reality
