This paper discusses the requirements and an implementation of a virtual environment for telerobotic shared control. The knowledge base that the computing system uses to perform decision making is called the World Model. Visual information from the World Model is displayed graphically as rendered, shaded, texture mapped animated polygons. The core of the shared control system is the computational engine that maintains, displays, visualizes and controls interaction with the World Model. The computational engine can be interrogated at several different levels. During operation: multilevel interaction defined by the program (mouse, keyboard, multi-modal input devices). The visualization system offers a highly interactive operating environment, enabling users to change objects, display attributes, and elements of the World Model in real time.
