This paper describes a user interface to remotely control a mobile robot using mobile devices such as a personal digital assistant (PDA) and a Smartphone, and we analyze the usability of the PDA-based user interfaces by changing their configurations. We then propose an optimal method of developing a user interface on the mobile devices, which have limited I/O capabilities. In this paper, the user can acquire an image and sensor data that are transferred from the mobile robot by using the PDA-based user interface, and we can send commands for robot navigation and robot camera control using this UL.
