In this paper, real-time multimedia applications are integrated into a Web-based robotic telecare system. Using Java media framework (JMF), a video/audio conference system is developed to improve the interaction among caregivers, and switches remote robot manipulating privilege with the help of a centralized management server. This video/audio conference system is established on a similar profile of H.323 multipoint control unit (MCU). Access control is utilized to guarantee confidentiality of telecare users. Different telecare services are provided to meet requirements of various users. The whole telecare system is verified in a campus network.
