With the increase of aging people, the task to maintain the health care level becomes heavier. To compensate for shortages of nurses and reduce the stress of nursing work, we have attempted to create an Internet based mobile robot system for hospitals or home healthcare. In this paper, we described a feasibility study and a basic platform design of a teleoperated healthcare service system via the Internet. We started from a literature review in the research on this topic. We then presented HSR-I, a new modular platform for Internet based mobile robotic systems including design principles, hardware and software architecture. Field tests at hospital facilities have confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed system equipped with the capability for navigation by visual information and friendly human-robot interface
