Physical sports play an important role in our daily lives. However, it is challenging to play inter-personal sports remotely. One of the problems is the time lag. The time lag decreases the reaction speed and accuracy of action of the remote player. To compensate for the time lag, we propose an approach that automates the player's actions for a moment based on predictions.
Behind The Game is a system for achieving a well-balanced inter-personal sports game between remote and local players. It overcomes remote player's disadvantages caused by a time lag without compromising the user's subjective experience.。
