Telerobotics a new direction in the arena of space exploration

Telerobotics is now emerging as the new technology in space exploration. Telerobotics offers promising results much more effective than on earth, where the human controlled robots are being used for the activities from delicate surgery to exploration into the deepest oceans and seas. Telerobotics in simple terms is the area of robotics that involves the control of robots from a distance.

The telerobotics technology is being used by the NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) through The Human Exploration Technology Demonstration Mission or HET by demonstrating how telerobotics through its remote controlled robotic arms, rovers and other devices can take the dangerous, repetitive, or long duration tasks thereby improving and speeding up the space exploration missions in the area of space exploration.

Telerobotics is now being recognized as more effective and productive for deep space exploration than the semi semi-autonomous robots like the robots like Mars rovers- Spirit and Opportunity.
