The Implementation of RobotPHONE

RobotPHONE is a Robotic User Interface (RUI) that uses robots as physical avatars for interpersonal communication. The shape and motion of RobotPHONE is continuously synchronized by a symmetric bilateral control method. Using RobotPHONE, users in remote locations can communicate shapes and motion with each other. In this paper we present the implementation of the RobotPHONE system including Virtual RobotPHONE. which is software for simulating an actual RobotPHONE.
