teleoperator

(tĕl″ē-ŏp′ĕr-āt″or)
A machine or device operated by a person at a distance. Such a machine allows tasks to be done deep in the ocean or on orbiting satellites, and allows radioactive materials to be manipulated without danger of exposure to the radioactivity.

Influxis also custom configured the media server network to ensure that the streaming, for both video and audio, was optimized for telerobotics. In conjunction with the optimized server network, Influxis' proprietary low-latency video player was displayed at the A's stadium Jumbotron and the Google Fiber office, allowing telepresence in less than half a second.
In addition, for the haptic "master-slave" telerobotic systems in [8], the operator manipulated an X-Y Table (Master) Robot as a virtual cutting tool and cut a virtual clay, and the operator can feel the force feedback when cutting occurred in the virtual environment.
The sliding-mode control overcomes needs for regression matrix, but application in telerobotics is limited to linear 1-DOF mechanical systems, (Cho, et al., 2001).
A CYPRUS cruise ship will this weekend be the host of pioneer telerobotic experiments at sea.
"I suppose if I was not made aware of those needs, if I did not aim to help people, I may not have pursued the whole idea of looking at telerobotics."
The telerobotic manipulation system enables cleanup efforts to be conducted remotely, performing chores that would have to otherwise be done on site by humans.
Telerobotics tools combine research and communication, making it possible for students to direct a telescope to look out in space from their classroom, to tend a garden located in Austria, or to experiment with light and heat in a model house in Australia.9 In these electronic field trips, scientists and researchers are reaching out to schools, inviting students to be a part of their learning communities, using a range of telerobotic devices to explore areas as remote as the ocean floor or outer space.
Far more than a novelty, the display offers solid advantages in medicine, chemistry, and telerobotics by showing spatial relationships not offered in a 2D image.

One representative example is the Voyager space probe to Mars which was controlled from the earth by means of navigation and telerobotics. Televirtuality permits the virtual meeting of several real people in cyberspace by putting their avatars, or virtual clones, face to face.
The Air Force has its own Robotics and Automation Center of Excellence at Kelly Air Force Base in Texas for development of systems used in munitions handling, telerobotics standardization, and remote operation of hazardous testing.
