In this paper, a Java and common object request broker architecture (CORBA) based management server is presented to switch the robot manipulating rights among the authorized caregivers in Internet TeleCare systems. A software switch, a chat room and a media control unit (MCU), which connect to database by Java database connectivity (JDBC), are developed as server software. The client software is programmed as two applets, robot remote manipulation and chat client, and embedded into a web page in the management server. CORBA IIOP is employed as communication platform between the robot control server program of C++ and the software switch of Java. The whole TeleCare system with image and video monitor is verified in campus networks. The developed robot manipulating management system will improve the Internet robot TeleCare system topology, and adapt to the mass application in the future.
