Real time video solutions for remote operation
Voysys video solution is optimized to provide the shortest possible delay. Some of our live systems provide below 100 ms delay from glass to glass, which is short enough for remote operation of delicate work tasks like loading timber.
We believe a human can do it’s best operating a machine if he/she feels like physically being by the machine.
Voysys video solution renders video on flat screens in a way so that perspectives are correct seen from the place where the operator’s head is positioned. This, to an extent, creates a similar experience as when using a VR headset.
Best possible immersiveness is however obviously achieved when using a real VR headset.
Voysys video solution allows for stereo 3D both on flat screens and in VR headsets. 3D can be applied to all video, or just selected directions. Many machines only require stereo 3D in the forward direction, and sending mono video in all other directions will in such scenarios help save bandwidth.
Stereo 3D (especially in VR headsets) has proven to dramatically increase the operators distance assessment. Playing with the stereo offset can result in better distance assessment than in real life.
Voysys video solution is input agnostic and allows for using literally any cameras. Real time measurement systems like Lidar or similar can also be used as input. Input modules are already available for a wide range of cameras on the market using interfaces such as USB, GigE, HDMi, SDI, RTMP etc.
Fast turnaround times
Voysys video solution is (to an extent) off the shelf and allows for experiments to get started as soon as camera hardware can be mounted on the vehicle/machine. Thanks to a smooth calibration process, new placements of cameras can be incorporated quickly into the system. Hence, many iterations of camera placements can be conducted at low costs. The drag-and-drop editor allows for fast iterations on the operator GUI.
The road to autonomous operation
Voysys video solution can be used as data collector for training of Neural Networks. All live video sources can be recorded in the field during remote operations, and then later be used at the office/lab for training of Neural Networks.
Voysys video solution can also be integrated with Neural Networks for detecting objects in the security area around a machine.
