PDF: JackIn space: designing a seamless transition between first and third person view for effective telepresence collaborations

Abstract

Traditional telepresence systems only supported first person view and users had difficulty in recognizing the surrounding situation of their remote workspace. JackIn Space is a telepresence system that solves this problem by seamlessly integrating first person view with third person view. With a head-mounted first person camera and multiple depth sensors installed in the environment, the surrogate user’s first person view smoothly changes to the out-of-body third person view, and the user connected to the surrogate user can virtually look around the environment. The user can also dive into other surrogate users to gain different perspectives. Our evaluation supports that the concept and the function of JackIn Space was quite well accepted and our prototype system provides a more natural viewpoint selection. Overall, JackIn Space supports better remote collaborations.
