Abstract: This paper describes a research study for the development and implementation of a prototype remote-controlled robotic assistant to doctors (Tele-Doc) for telemedicine applications. The development considers implementation issues concerning real-time and continuous patient monitoring and diagnosis, as well as tele-control interfacing techniques, mobile robot motion controller, reprogrammable embedded processing system, and internet-based robotic control centre. The paper also describes bio-data measurement techniques, as well as simple system architecture and its implementation.
