Simple real time AI techniques are presented that support tele-operated mobile robot operators when they are steering. They permit a tele-operator to be included in the steering as much as possible, while offering help when required to avoid obstacles and to reach their target destination. The direction to a destination (via point) becomes an extra input along with the usual inputs from a joystick and an obstacle avoidance sensor system. A recommended direction is suggested and that is mixed with joystick position and angle. A rule-based system provides a suggested angle to turn the robot and that is mixed with input from a joystick to help a tele-operator to steer their mobile robot towards a destination.
