Telerobotics actually result from the merger of two originally separate areas that are teleoperation and robotics. Indeed, autonomous robotics is not yet fully developed, the robot must now be operated remotely by a human operator. We must therefore take into account the principles developed in teleoperation. However, as the robot can perform basic tasks independently, it is called telerobotics rather than teleoperation. Telerobotics has applications wherever man has difficulty working directly (hostile environment, too far or too small places) and the tasks are sufficiently complex or unpredictable to be an obstacle to full automation. The main condition for the development of telerobotics is the ability to compete with the direct intervention of humans or the use of an automated highly specialized. In the first case, the advantage of telerobotics is firstly the replacement of human labor painful or dangerous by another, more secure and more comfortable. In the second case, we must show the interest of a material more versatile than the automatic system dedicated to the proposed application.
