Telepresence is different from remote control. When you remote control a robot, you could operate at distant places without moving from your desk. You could work in dangerous places like the bottom of the ocean or top of a hill. However, when you control a telepresence robot, the idea is to not only to create your virtual presence, but also to feel the remote situation. There is a Japanese word for describe this “presence”this word is sonzai, it’s like to be “in” the situation. You could think these robots as a personal “avatar”.
