At Telerobot (telerobot.mech.uwa.edu.au) on the web, users can move the robot. This demonstration of remote operation and programming of the industrial robot links users to the six-axis robot. Users receive still video images of the robot's workspace and can move its gripper in x, y, z, roll, pitch, and yaw. The user then gets a new picture. The site also offers a VRML model of the robot, simulations of the robot including movies made with AutoCAD 3D Studio, and a discussion area.
