CSIRO says remote telerobotics is not science fiction, and it has created an immersive version of the technology to help Rio Tinto break rocks.

Telerobotics involves a human being remotely operating a robotically-wired piece of equipment from a distance, be it a few hundred metres or hundreds of kilometres away.

Prior to CSIRO?s decision to engineer more immersive solutions, telerobotics involved a video feed to the operators, who would then respond with commands to the robot.

CSIRO scientists realised this was not very productive, because operators lacked situational awareness. To increase the immersive experience, users needed more information in real time.
