Combining with some research achievements in remote control of robot at home and abroad, this paper analyzes general principle of it and designs a remote control system for robot. The system can be realized through network, and it utilizes browser/server mode and applies CGI program which is written in VB. Through the CGI program, the communication between server and browser is realized. Not only does the design describe the control process, but also it defines a scheme of the remote control system which determines integrated structure. Besides, a user interface which includes user permissions and function modules is developed. Finally, a preliminary control test for system is taken and the performance of the system is analyzed.
