Networked Robotics [SG02, SG03] is a kind of Human-Robot Interaction [HRI04]; the human operator collaborates with the robot for the execution of difficult tasks for which the robot cannot achieve
a high level of autonomy due to the complexity of the task or the structure of the operating environment.

    ABSTRACT: From the very beginning, men have used tools to increase their manipulation ability. The development of tools for operating at a distance culminated in the development of teleoperation systems. Teleoperation means simply operating a device at a distance, so that it enables the capability to sense and to act in a remote location. The present paper has as main objective to develop a system to allow any user, independently if he knows the system or the instructions to operate a robot, can teleoperate with the team of robots to achieve a specific task goal, making transparent for that user the differences among the different robots of the team. Thus, an easy-to-use user interface and an effective agent-based human-robot interaction method to enable robust mobile robot teleoperation have been created.

    ABSTRACT: This paper introduces a simulated joint robot-hand system based on Java3D, which can be used as a Java application in an independent computer, or as a Java Applet in a network environment. When the system is executed, the authorized user can control the simulated robot hand with flexible input device like joystick, and the status of the robot hand can be displayed in 3D-simulation mode dynamically. After the operation, the operation data was recorded into database automatically, and a log is built, so that the past operation can be checked or analyzed.
