This paper firstly reviews five artificial intelligence tools that might be useful in as-sisting a tele-operator with driving a mobile robot: knowledge-based systems (in-cluding rule based systems and case-based reasoning), automatic knowledge ac-quisition, fuzzy logic, neural networks and genetic algorithms. Rule-based sys-tems were selected to provide simple real time AI techniques to support tele-operated mobile robot operators with steering because they allow tele-operators to be included in the driving as much as possible and to reach their target destina-tion, while providing assistance when needed to avoid an obstacle. The direction to a destination (via point) becomes an extra input along with an obstacle avoid-ance sensor system and the usual inputs from a joystick. A recommended direc-tion is mixed with joystick position and angle. A rule-based system generates a recommended angle to turn the mobile robot and that is mixed with an input from a joystick in order to assist tele-operators with steering their mobile robots towards their destinations.
