TOKYO – Ever since the new variant of the coronavirus took over the world in 2020, contactless remote control and metaverse technologies are being developed in Japan.
The Mitsubishi Electric Advanced Technology Research Institute in Japan is researching remote control technology on the theme of no-contact. This initiative is being undertaken so that people with physical disabilities can perform jobs and find work.
Mitsubishi aims to develop the technology, so that it is put into practical use by the year 2025. This platform is also useful for remote robot operation. Forum8, a software developer, has been focusing on the development of VRCG software in recent years, as VR has been effectively used in all fields. In addition, Forum 8 will expand the possibility of virtual space with this software. The future will be all about contactless technology and virtual spaces, which will be helpful in making the lives of its citizens easier and more diversified.
