Abstract

There are several transporter is presented in films. This research aims to realize such transporter by using Mixed Reality (MR) technology. In this paper, the authors introduce a framework of “A Distributed MR Transporter” and following two essential technologies to realize it; 1) The coherency control protocol named “Duplication-Selection-Protocol” for comfortable and joyful collaboration in shared MR space, 2) “Ponch-3D” to acquire and reconstruct remote real space as a simplified 3D model. The proposed framework and technologies can be applicable for several practical applications.
