Abstract: In the case of remote inspection and maintenance operations, the quality and amount of information available to the operator on demand plays a significant role. In knowledge-intensive tasks performed remotely or in a hazardous environment, augmented and virtual reality technologies are often seen as a solution capable of providing the required level of information support. Application of these technologies faced many obstacles over the years, mostly due to the insufficient maturity level of their technical implementations. This thesis contains a description of the research work related to the usage of augmented and virtual reality in remote inspection and maintenance operations, and is aimed at solving some of the most common problems associated with the application of these technologies. During the project, an optical see-through augmented reality glasses calibration method was developed, as well as a virtual reality application for robotic teleoperation. The implemented teleoperation system was tested in two different simulated scenarios, and the additional questions of the immersive environment reconstruction, spatial user interface, connection between virtual and real worlds are addressed in this thesis report.
