Paper Abstract

"Tele-presence" communication using JGNII - an exclusive optical-fiber network system - was applied to social-skills training in the form of child-rearing support. This application focuses on internet counseling and social training skills that require interactive verbal and none-verbal communications. The motivation for this application is supporting local communities by constructing tele-presence education and entertainment systems using recently available, inexpensive IP networks. This latest application of tele-presence communication uses mirror-interface system which provides to users in remote locations a shared quasi-space where they can see themselves as if they were in the same room by overlapping video images from remote locations.
