Use of robotic infrastructures can significantly increase with remote access. This would open up the possibility to use costly equipment without the need to buy them, or to simply access those assets remotely when actual travel is not possible or recommended - for example in pandemic times. In this paper we present an analysis of several networking techniques which allow remote robotics operations, alongside with experimental results with distance ranging from hundreds of meters up to thousands…

We review the networked mobile robot systems and suggest taxonomy based on the three levels of control commands. The performance analysis result shows that direct control has potential difficulty for
Establishing remote networks for ROS applications via Port Forwarding
Results show that robot performance under Port Forwarding is on par with cloud-based solutions, but it required a fraction of setup time, and the authors developed a set of shell scripts that monitor the Internet addresses of all networked components and auto-update Port forwarding settings when they change, solving this issue.
Remote Robot Control with Human-in-the-Loop over Long Distances Using Digital Twins
A robot control algorithm for controlling time-critical robot applications over networks with considerable delays and jitter is proposed and implemented in a demonstrator with a robot arm and its DT in VR.
