Definitions of separated-groups teleconferences, as opposed to person-to-person video telephone service, are reviewed. The teleconference facility, in terms of an audio mode, a graphics mode, and a video mode, can have an impact on the interactive, interpersonal communication process. Recent audio and audio/video teleconference experiments are summarized. Teleconferencing is not viewed as an alternative to transportation by urban planners or urban transportation demand forecasters, at least for the remainder of this century. The absence of design information and research results for the separated-groups teleconference service telecommunication facility tends to support that view.
