Abstract

This paper describes a system which uses a mobile manipulator located in a library as a teleoperated tool for browsing books from a remote location via the Internet. In the process of developing this system, we designed and built a robot system, specially equipped for the accomplishment of browsing determined books, which is mainly categorized by 3 basic goals: (1) picking up the book by using a manipulator, (2) opening the book and (3) turning pages by a developed browsing device. Likewise, this paper also describes the human interface by the integration of Internet technologies, and summarize some considerations about the system.
