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 on-site/off-site operations. Avatars are highly versatile. They can save tremendous amounts of time, improve task consistency, and offer super-human capabilities across broad commercial and consumer applications. Avatar technology is the key to cost-effective A-Z automation of common tasks such as dishwashing and laundry. Piloted operation is the key to quickly training useful autonomous AI. Avatars are also especially suited for dangerous and long-distance activities that normally incur significant human risk and commute time.

As costs decrease, wireless connectivity improves (range/latency/bandwidth), and batteries endure 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:

  1. Application Environment: Avatar Robot, AC-DC Power Supply, Battery Packs and Charger, ...
  2. Control Environment: Operator, Suit, Control Panel, ...
  3. Utility Servers: Connection Bridge, Cloud Storage/Processing
  4. Supporting Infrastructure: Electric Power, Cable Telecom, Satellite Telecom, Mobile Telecom, ...
