Abstract [en]

This paper reports a study of pilots of a robotic telepresence system, exploring the relationship between the pilots' experience of physical presence, overall user experience, and task parameters. The pilots (N=12) performed a set of tasks characterized by different Task Focus (Process vs. Outcome) and Navigation Difficulty (Low vs. High); their experience was assessed by using a set of subjective rating scales. It was found that the experience of being physically present in a remote location positively correlated with self-reported gaming skills, objective indicators of navigation efficiency, as well as feelings of being safe and relaxed. No significant effects of task focus and navigation difficulty were found.

Abstract [en]

Robotic telepresence systems enable humans to be present physically and socially in a distant environment. Robotic telepresence technology is the latest in the line of communication technology development. The unique feature of such technology is that its users can act in a distant environment and interact with other people through these systems. The robot is the user’s physical avatar through which they act. This thesis aims to understand how people connect to the world through robotic telepresence. The aim includes addressing how humans operate the robotic telepresence system, how the robotic telepresence supports performing actions in a distant location and supports social interaction, and how a human experience being in a robotic body.

The thesis is based on five studies, reported in five papers, that explore different aspects of robotic telepresence. The theoretical foundations consist of activity theory and phenomenology, two traditions that are arguably compatible and complementary. The concept of remote embodiment is proposed to describe the relationship between the human and robotic telepresence systems. Remote embodiment is a phenomenon, design concept, and feature that enables robotic telepresence to be used in a wide variety of activities. Furthermore, I use the concept of remote embodiment to outline possible futures of robotic telepresence.
