Robotic manipulators are widely used to replace human operators in tasks that are
repetitive in nature. However, there are many tasks that are non-repetitive,
unpredictable, or hazardous to the human operators. With teleoperation, or remote
control, such tasks can still be performed using robotic manipulators. A suitable
platform with visual and mechanical feedback is deemed necessary to simplify the
operation of such system. This paper describes the design and implementation of a
telepresent robot control system using virtual reality (VR) instruments. The system
includes a stereo Head-Eye Module (HEM) with 3 degree-of-freedom, a high-
resolution stereo Head Mounted Display (HMD) for remote supervision, and a 6
