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.)

Remember, remote access tools may impact performance of a robot control program running within it. If possible, quit the remote-access application after starting up the robot control program. Below are some examples of programs that are generally used for any remote operation of a computer.

GNU/Linux

console
  • ssh
remote desktop

Windows
