It is now possible to visit the National Museum virtually – via laser-guided robots that provide remote visitors with an experience of mobile telepresence.
Groups of school students interact with a museum educator through a robot equipped with a panoramic camera.
This project is the result of an innovative partnership between the National Museum, CSIRO and the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy. The mobile telepresence technology operates via high-speed broadband connections.
