MITRE immersive spherical vision system

Immersive vision systems for teleoperation are a valuable tool for many applications including inspections of old buildings, pipelines and sewages, search and rescue, and military, i.e., detection and neutralization of roadside bombs. Immersive systems work by presenting a virtual representation of the world seen via a camera that is situated away from the operator (note: I use the term virtual representation of the world liberally here because what the operator sees is actually images of the real world captured by a remote camera; I call it virtual because a explained later these images arrive delayed which means that the real world may have change since the data was collected.)
