Conference paper

Abstract

This paper presents the design of a web-based tele-operated control system intended for office-wide geographically remote and real time control of a mobile robot utilizing networking technologies. A comprehensive account of the design paradigm for the web based control system of the robot is presented. Experiments are successfully carried out to verify the system implemented.
