Because the elderly population is growing while the number of people to take care of them is declining, we propose an Internet telerobotic system to assist the aged or disabled in their homes when their caregivers are away. We analyze typical teleoperation robotic systems and design an Internet telerobotic system using CORBA . We detail the system's features, architecture, and implementation. The proposed system gives users the ability to control the robotic system remotely by an intuitive user interface. The client can transparently invoke methods on the application servers across the network without knowing where the application servers are located, what programming language the application is written in, or what operating system is being used. This is because, in developing and implementing the system, CORBA for the distributed, object-oriented applications was used.
