Telerobotics is also the discipline of controlling robots (usually non-autonomous ones) from a distance. This is good if you want to build a space station, dispose of a bomb, clean up some nuclear waste, or crawl up an aorta, but are afraid of getting short of air/blown up/leukemia/bloody. Telerobotics is a field that will take off once we have some good haptic interfaces.
