Remote Operation of Onboard Computer
From MobileRobots Research and Academic Customer Support
This page describes some tools that can be used to remotely operate a robot's onboard computer over a network.
(For remote operation of the robot by software or human teleoperation of a robot with an onboard computer, use MobileEyes and and ArNetworking or other Software Libraries for Network Communication. If a robot does not have an onboard computer, you can use a Wireless ethernet-serial bridge device to send low level commands directly to the robot microcontroller from the wireless network.)

- remote desktop
- Linux X Windows Remote Access
- ssh with x-forwarding
- Windows Remote Desktop
