Tele-Guidance System to Support Anticipation during Communication
AbstractTele-guidance systems for the remote monitoring and maintenance of equipment have been extensively investigated. Such systems enable a remote helper to provide guidance to a local worker while perceiving local conditions. In this study, we propose a tele-guidance system that supports the anticipation of an interlocutor’s actions during communication. Our proposed system enables a helper and worker to anticipate each other’s actions by allowing them to move around in the workspace freely and observe each other’s non-verbal cues (e.g., body motions and other gestures) through a head-mounted display. We conducted an experiment to compare the effectiveness of our proposed method with that of existing methods (a simple tele-pointer) that support anticipation during communication.
