SIMULATING TELEROBOTICS BY CELLULAR TELEPHONY

Abstract

In this work we present a simulation system to control a mobile robot using a cell phone. We exploit the cellular telephony technology to communicate and command a robot provided with a modem in a simulation environment. The system considers telerobotics can be performed using phone tones or sending text messages via SMS. Due the cellular telephony is expensive, the simulation system give us the possibility to experiment infinitely this novel way of telerobotics without expending a lot of economical resources. We design all components required for a basic cellular telephony system and we employ a robotics simulator for the Pioneer mobile robot, expecting to translate the system primitives to real systems in a near future. The idea comes up due that cellular telephony has an enormous covering, and taking advantage of such situation, telerobotics could be performed in places where wireless networking and power sources are not available at all such as the country.
