Telepresence is a human/machine system in which the human uses displays and body-operated remote actuators and sensors to control distant machinery. For any telepresence system there are three essential sub-systems, i.e. the home site technology which interfaces to the user and the communication link, the communication link itself which interfaces to the home site and the remote site, and the remote site technology which interfaces with the communication link and possibly a remote site human.
