A Robot that allows you to communicate to a remote location/person over a certain distance through an established communication is called a Telepresence robot. A telepresence robot be could manually control from a remote location. A Telepresence robot could be used for many applications, but the main purpose served by it is to develop social interaction. Social interaction developed by the robot could be used for applications like elderly health care, children with special needs, sports, offices, and education.
The main purpose of this project is to design an ideal Telepresence robot that could be used for education. To develop an ideal design of an Ideal telepresence robot, it should meet the criteria to serve as a pedagogue in a classroom. The teacher and robot should have an established communication via the wireless network so that a teacher could control the robot. In this research, few methods have been developed and implemented on the telepresence robot for education purposes. The telepresence robot is configured to overcome the problems that are like obstacles to the current telepresence robotic systems to be used for education.
To facilitate the teaching from a remote one obstacle of the telepresence robot is having a limited view of the class, an image stitching technique has been proposed to tackle the problem. Another problem is the crowded control of the telepresence robot from its interface. By devising an eye-mouse control to ease the control and accommodate the telepresence robot control even to the physically challenged pedagogues. Thus, in a world of decreasing the number of pedagogues, this could be one of the better solutions.
