The research explores means to induce the sense of tele-presence in remote robot tele-operations. By letting the operator feel the experience of being in the remote environment, his control actions can be simplified. The principle aims to virtually transfer the operator to the remote robot, to improve robot operations. We focus on the design and evaluation of new immersive interacting mechanism for tele-operating a remote robot. Results shows a minimization of cognitive workload and improvements in the task performance.
