Research on Networked Multimedia

To achieve high quality of audio, visual, haptic, and olfactory media communications

To realize networked multimedia of high quality over the Internet,
we address the following research topics (please click them to get more informaition).

QoS (Quality of Service) control
Media synchronization schemes
  • Intra-stream, inter-stream, and inter-destination (or group) synchronization schemes
  • Assessment and comparison of media synchronization quality among schemes
  • Haptic media synchronization schemes
Multimedia communication protocols
  • Audio, video, and haptic media communications
  • Multicast communications

We deal with the following networked multimedia applications.

We especially focus on study on remote cooperation among humans and robots with force feedback.
We aim at advanced cooperation between robots-robots, humans-humans, and humans-robots.
To this end, we need various technologies such as network technology, media technology, and AI technology.
