Avatar G1

The avatar is a physical, full-scale humanoid robot controlled wirelessly across the internet by a human operator equipped with a compact on-body interface. See, hear, touch, and interact anywhere in the world in real-time.

Overview

The Avatar G1 project is the design and implementation effort towards a first-generation avatar-operator system with turn-key usability, human-like performance, industrial reliability, and standard commercial availability.

Avatars are a key step on the world technology tree that significantly improves the safety, convenience, and efficiency of local and international operations. Avatars are highly versatile. They save time, improve consistency, and offer super-human capabilities across broad commercial and consumer applications. That said, they are especially suited for dangerous and long-distance activities that normally incur excessive human risk and commute time.

As costs go down, wireless connectivity improves (range/latency/bandwidth), and batteries last longer, we expect that avatars will populate and integrate into the modern landscape (urban to rural), exciting a new era of work and play.

The avatar-operator system has 4 key high-level elements. Consider the avatar robot in the application environment, the operator and their equipment in the control environment, the utility servers (connection bridge, cloud processing), and the supporting infrastructure (power, telecom).
