The Live Demo is over now!

WebFAIR addresses the marketing and promotion requirements of large commercial exhibitions by providing broad access to information, services and commodities exhibited at the event. Essentially, WebFAIR aims at providing the means to remote corporate and private users for active and personalised workplace exploration and information visualisation for commercial purposes.

The goal of the proposed project is the development and validation of an interactive tele-presence system (WebFAIR) based on mobile robotic systems, able to provide individual access to large exhibitions and commercial trade-fairs over the World-Wide Web. The user observes through the "eyes" (cameras) of the robot and hears though its "ears" (microphones). Through a Web-interface, users all over the world will be able to tele-control the robotic avatar and specify exhibits, or interesting places that they may wish to visit.
