GITAI

Telepresence robot startup for space development


    

ABOUT

GITAI

GITAI provides a humanoid telepresence robot-like "Avatar" for science experiments in space stations and moon based development. GITAI's Avatar robot is remotely controlled by humans with VR HMD, motion capture suit and haptic glove, enabling their operators to see, hear, feel and interact freely in a remote environment in real time via standard wireless networks. Especially visual data is very big and cause delayed information transfer, so GITAI also have developed independent P2P communication based on independent protocol, data volume reduction algorithm and OS for synchronization. As a result, GITAI could minimize HD data of 360-degree camera from 330Mbps to 1Mbps and data latency of 8,000km distance to 100ms via standard wifi network. By sending just one Avatar robot to ISS which is 400km above the earth, many scientists can conduct experiments such as space manufacturing using 3D printer without costs of transportation of human resources as if they're in the ISS, remotely from earth.
