This paper proposes a method for 3D modeling of environments used to perform teleoperation of a mobile robot. Recently, the expectation to tele-operated mobile robots has been increasing much in order to perform a monitoring in various scenes. However, there are many critical problems in tele-operated systems. Especially, we must expand visual range from a robot, the usability of human interface, and intention sharing between the robot and operator. First, we discuss information visualization for human-friendly tele-operation. Next, we propose a tele-operating system based on multi-resolution map. Finally, we propose a method of 3D modeling using Microsoft Kinect sensor, and show several experimental results of the proposed method.
