Description (last modified by

One-sentence layman's description: This demo shows a working prototype of a next generation communication system using 3D video and force feedback devices.

Who should see this demo? Attendees interested in real-time applications demonstrating use of Kinect cameras, 3D rendering and force feedback devices.

Demo description paragraph(s): This demo has two identical systems located in (virtually) remote locations. The purpose of this demo is to show an application that demands high bandwidth and multi-modal communication between two remote systems. The application we choose is 3D Tele-Rehabilitation. The goal of the application is to virtually recreate a physical therapy session between a patient and a therapist. The 3D models of the two participants are captured using a 3D Camera that is available off the shelf (Microsoft Kinect v2.0). These 3D models are placed in a shared virtual environment of our choosing. To simulate the physical touch part of a physical therapy session we use a Haptic force- feedback device, the data from which is also transmitted to and fro to create a force feedback element in the virtual environment. This application is just an example of what can be achieved with a next generation networks/protocols that support high bandwidth and low latency communication.

List of equipment that will need AC connections (e.g. laptop, switch,monitor): 8

2x Laptop 2x Kinect Cameras 2x Haptic device 2x Monitors

Total number of wired network connections (sum standard IP and VLAN connections): 2

Number of wired layer 2 VLANs (if any):

Number of wireless network connections (include required bandwidth if significant): 0

Number of static addresses needed (if any): 2

Monitor (y/n, specify VGA or DVI): y

2 (HDMI preferred, VGA also acceptable) 1920x1080 resolution preferred.

Number of posters (max size poster boards are 30" x 40"):

Special requests: None

Thanks for the demo submission, I will get back to you with confirmation of available resources.

Of note, NSF will be looking at this wiki page, so please feel free to update if you notice any errors or wish to update your demo description.
