Paper Abstract

It is important to look for alternative forms of physical movement of people and equipment, to assure diagnosis and maintenance tasks. To reach this aim a lot of researches are being done in different fields of maintenance and computer science. An evident and classical solution is the use of the tele-operation and tele-robotics trough Internet. If the tele-operation helped to solve a lot of real and technical problems, it still remains insufficient to assure an appropriate remote diagnosis and maintenance. The use of virtual reality techniques with the tele-operation can be the solution for an effective remote maintenance and diagnosis. In this paper we show the inefficiency occurred with the only use of tele-operation in the remote maintenance, we introduce our system, explain its structure, implementation and its advantages.
