Imagine being welcomed to your facility by an on-screen character. An avatar you can interact with via voice, gestures and touch and who recognises you and responds with speech and on screen information. DV Signage is creating onscreen Avatars to give experience centres and smart buildings a digital personality.
DV Signage Avatars are designed to be the face of the system. On-screen characters that act as your host, friend and guide. An avatar is a virtual presence that combines different interactive mechanisms (gesture, voice, touch, proximity, RFID) to provide seamless interactive visitor experiences across a whole facility.
The DV Signage Avatars are designed to work alongside a humanoid Pepper Robot, a voice activated Alexa or Google Home interface, or to simply act as a stand alone screen based application.
The idea of an avatar is to provide another form of human interface between the visitor and data. Our avatars can collect audio from microphones across the environment and connect to IBM Watson for natural conversations. The Avatars can pop up on nearby screens when you approach, using proximity sensors and smart building infrastructure to automatically pick up your presence. The avatars become your link to the digital control of the smart building, from interacting on requests for wayfinding or room management or agenda information, to turning up the air conditioning, to discussing the traffic on your route home.
The Avatars can take the form of animated characters or be based on more realistic humanoid characters. Each can be tailored to your brand or environment.
