OTOROB is a telemedicine mobile robot for orthopaedic surgeons that have remote presence capability to diagnose patients in remote area. As a telemedicine robot that interacts with human being, it is required to have extensive safety system. This paper presents a Fuzzy Logic based Danger Monitoring System (DMS) and Fail-Safe and Auto Recovery System (FSARS) that monitors the robot's operation. It is incorporated to the onboard flexible robotic arm vision system and the robot's navigation system. It monitors the robot surrounding and internal systems for danger or failures and takes precaution measures to overcome it. The system is tested by a set of experiments and found to be demonstrating an acceptable performance.
