    Web robots are a concept that has captured the interest of researchers and developers. Their potential is being investigated at the University of Western Australia, where a six-axis robot has been made teleoperable over the World Wide Web. The site has been active since September 1994 and the robot has also been exhibited at the Australian National Science and Technology Centre in Canberra. Someon... View full abstract»

    Any way you look at it, the robot has an exciting future. Soon, we can expect the robot to move out of the factory and enter the domestic and business worlds. The domestic robot will appear in the home as an electronic pet and soon will develop the ability to perform useful tasks there. The sensory ability of all robots will greatly improve. In the long run, robots will acquire the capabilities th... View full abstract»

    Initiated at CERN in 1992, the World Wide Web provides a standard graphical interface to the Internet, and the number of users worldwide has grown exponentially in the last few years. In the Spring of 1994, we conjectured that it might be possible to offer public access to a teleoperated robot via the WWW. As a feasibility study in 1994, we built a system that allows a robot manipulator to be tele... View full abstract»

    For years research has focused on ways to allow remote access via standard communication networks to unique or expensive structures. With the growth of the Internet, one finds more and more devices connected to it. Despite the fact that one may spy on other people with hundreds of cameras, it is currently possible to interact only with a few robots, which often have restricted access. To use a cam...

    The growth of the World Wide Web provides unique opportunities to bring robots closer to people. The vision behind such endeavors ranges from relatively simple web-based inspections and surveillance applications to highly versatile applications that use robots connected to the web to establish a remote telepresence in dynamic and populated environments. In the latter scenario, robots play the role... View full abstract»
