New robot applications using smart devices are recently providing interesting and feasible solutions to longstanding problems. In this study, we propose a remote control and monitoring method using an omni-directional mobile robot with a smart device. We also developed remote control and monitoring application software for the smart device by using Microsoft’s .Net Compact Framework and Bluetooth data communication to support various smart OS Platforms. We evaluated the feasibility and the effectiveness of the proposed method by conducting several experiments involving remote control of a mobile robot using a gravity sensor in a smart device and remote monitoring.
