Abstract

“Tele-Operation” has been already known as a technical word in our daily life. Most people think that “Tele-Operation” is the technology which realizes remote control of robots in space or hazardous environments like a nuclear plant. Of course some others know that it implies more wider technology field. In this case a lot of researchers notice that the “Tele-Operation” is one of the necessary technologies for the information infrastructure because of the most valuable services for people on this infrastructure, require some motions together with motion images and sounds, like in multi-media. Robots, for instance could be good intelligent interfaces between computer networks and people, and on the other hand robots could assist people in such scenes where some motion as moving objects are required. Usually it is thought to be difficult to realize that robots have to possess considerable autonomous intelligence to understand environments and intentions of the users. But now we can use our knowladge to let robots have some similar intelligence as humans have by using tele-operation. Tele-operation with some degree of autonomous intelligence is a key technology to realize truly useful robots in the information infrastructure.
