Semantic Web Technologies for improving remote visits of museums, using a mobile robot

Abstract : The Azkar research project focuses on the remote control of a mobile robot using the emerging Web technologies WebRTC for real time communication. One of the use cases addressed is a remote visit of the French Museum of the Great War in Meaux. For this purpose, we designed an ontology for describing the main scenes in the museum, the objects that compose them, the different trails the robot can follow in a given time period, for a targeted audience, the way points, observation points. This RDF dataset is exploited to assist the human guide in designing a trail, and possibly adapting it during the visit. In this paper we present the Azkar Museum Ontology, the RDF dataset describing some emblematic scenes of the museum, and an experiment that took place in June 2016 with a robot controlled by an operator located 800 kms from the museum. We propose to demonstrate this work during the conference by organizing a remote visit from the conference demo location.
