Telepresence technology

Telepresence technology is a term used by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to refer to the combination of satellite technology with the Internet to broadcast information, including video in real-time from cameras used on its remotely operated vehicle (ROV) on Okeanos Explorer. Its ROV will be operating working in a deep sea environment. Data from the ROV is transmitted to a hub based on the land, which then send it to scientists and to the public. [1] [2]

This effort of the Okeanos Explorer has been compared to the lunar landing. [3]

The telepresence technology used by NOAA includes the following: [2]

  • deep water mapping, to a depth of 6,000 m
  • science-oriented ROV operations
  • real-time satellite transmission of data.

The Okeanos Explorer is designed as an educational tool that can be followed on Twitter. [4] [5]
