Project Description

We aim to create a society that is resilient to infectious diseases, by using avatar robots to enable telework for essential workers whose work requires physical contact with people. ​
We will conduct research and development of a tele-physical caregiving service that enables telework in caregiving.​
In this service, a caregiver operates a nursing care avatar at the nursing care site from a remote location via a digital twin of the nursing care site built in cyberspace to perform nursing care tasks. To realize this service, we will conduct research and development on the following three technologies.​

  1. Haptic sensing technology that captures complex physical information as a distribution on a three-dimensional curved surface,
  2. Technology for understanding and reproducing the movements of a remote caregiver, and
  3. Safety standards that are essential for social acceptance.​
