This paper presents a telepresence system for a ride, such as on a roller coaster, using a motion platform that can provide a seated user with the sensation of inertial force. Most conventional studies using a motion platform with a few degrees of freedom have not generated an inertial force when a ride accelerates, because a motion platform cannot simulate the same motion of a real roller coaster. We propose a new telepresence system that can provide a user with an inertial force sensation using a motion platform with a few degrees of freedom and an immersive display. In our research, the inertial force sensation is generated by acceleration of gravity produced by inclining the motion platform. The inclination of the seated user is estimated from an image sequence captured using an omnidirectional camera placed on an actual running roller coaster. In our experiments, the inertial force sensation is realized using a motion platform and an immersive display.
