A remotely controlled robot comprises a unit storing the layout plan of a building, a unit receiving a position remotely designated in the layout plan from a remote location and a unit controlling the travel of the robot to the designated position. A self-position identification method is implemented by a robot with a camera whose shooting direction can be changed. The robot takes in advance a panoramic picture of a room where the robot may travel, generates a reference picture by extracting a plurality of block pictures from the panoramic picture and identifies a room where the robot is located, by applying correlation and DP matching, using both a picture taken in the room where the robot is located and the reference picture.
