Abstract

This paper helps in developing a new telepresence TP that will capture the vocal stream, and allow users to relate to natural behaviours that spontaneously arise during speech. Most of the work in affective computing within telepresence robot platforms adds to current research and knowledge generation as opposed to application. Consequently, users do not get clear benefits from them in the real world. The main reason behind this lack of benefit is that most research does not represent reality, and the actual capabilities we have in the real world do not match the capabilities that are used in research. Therefore, contemporary telepresence robot design should be based on an understanding of different aspects of human-human interaction (HHI) in regard to that which can be feasibly implemented in TP. Thus, this study will provided step by step guidelines to govern the creation of practical natural user interfaces using the vocal stream.
