PROJECT Oculus Rift HMD
Utilization of the Oculus Rift HMD in Mobile Robot Teleoperation
A new system was developed – a virtual operator station. The mobile robot operator wearing the HMD Oculus Rift is
put to a black virtual room and can look around by head movements.
The virtual room contains several 3D objects,
primarily rectangular planes with various data.
The biggest rectangle is a virtual screen plane with
images of the stereovision cameras. The screens on
left and right sides display pictures from a
secondary (rear) camera and from a thermo vision
camera. Right in front is rendered a 3D model of the
mobile robot with the arm at the real actual
position. Additional necessary data about the robot
are displayed below the smaller camera images on
both sides, using clear visual representations (icons,
symbols). Important icons can be also displayed
over the camera image.
