A network-based robot simulator was developed by modularizing simulator functions and representing them with hierarchical graphical icons. This enables functions to be added, changed, or modified as needed without programming for different uses such as offline teaching of robots, network distributed processing, robot teleoperation using command communication, and real-time computer graphics (CG) animators in virtual reality. We introduce examples of the simulator kinematically analyzing multiple robot arms, dynamically analyzing forestry machines, and teleoperating space robots.
