Paper Abstract

Teaching students concepts about mobile and stationary robotics is difficult because there are few environments available for elegant and robust demonstrations. To aid student's understanding, robotic concepts need to be demonstrated not only in the lab but in the classroom. Since it is usually difficult to bring the equipment from the lab to the classroom, an environment for controlling and viewing the robots from the classroom is presented. The environment has several features: control from a distance, visually monitoring of actions, and feedback from different levels of system. A complete environment incorporating these features for teleoperated control of mobile robots and robot arms is detailed.
