Abstract

This paper describes the concept of fitting autonomy for remote operation systems, which means that the autonomy of the remote place is defined in a case-by-case basis, taking into account the requirements of the applications and the characteristics of the communication channels. Thus high levels of flexibility and independence on the characteristics of the communication channels are achieved. An architecture for mobile agents equipped with execution supervision is adopted as a solution to implement this approach. An application of these concepts in the context of the remote manipulation of a robot through the Internet is described.
