Time Follower's Vision is an innovative visual presentation system for remote vehicle control. A nonautonomous control mechanism with a human operator is useful for critical missions like search and rescue. Almost all teleoperated robot systems have an egocentric view camera. However, using a first person's view camera, operators require extensive training to adequately presume the posture of the vehicle from limited information. Time Follower's Vision is a control system that solves these problems by producing a virtual exocentric view using mixed reality technology, and presenting the surrounding environment of the vehicle and the vehicle's status to the operator. Therefore, even for inexperienced operators, the posture of the vehicle and the surrounding situation can be readily understood.
