Remote operation is the control and operation of a system or equipment from a remote location.
There are several particular types of systems that are often controlled remotely:
- Remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) are extensively used in hazardous environments (i.e. radioactive environments, contaminated environments, minefields, deep oceans).
- Entertainment systems (i.e. Televisions, VCRs, DVD players) are often controlled remotely via a remote control.
- Industrial machinery is often operated remotely, particularly in hazardous environments. One notable example is in the construction of the Object Shelter or sarcophagus at Chernobyl after the Chernobyl accident.
- Remote surgery
