1. A remote presence system, comprising:
a remote mobile workstation comprising a controller and a drive system; and
a pilot workstation operatively coupled to the remote mobile workstation in a peer-to-peer network configuration, the pilot workstation comprising a first input device and a second input device, such that navigation commands configured to be input from a pilot operating on the first input device and the second input device are communicated to the remote mobile workstation and utilized to provide navigation control of the drive system by the controller;
wherein the controller of the remote mobile workstation is configured to
switch from a first state of navigation control of the drive system, wherein the first state of navigation control is based upon receiving, at a first time, a first navigation command generated by and communicated from the first input device of the pilot workstation at the remote mobile workstation, to a second state of navigation control of the drive system, wherein switching to the second state of navigation control is based upon an operation failure of the first input device during the first state of navigation control of the drive system, and receiving, at a second time later than the first time, a second navigation command generated by and communicated from the second input device of the pilot workstation at the remote mobile workstation, and
upon switching to the second state of navigation control, disregard any subsequent navigation commands at the remote mobile workstation received after the second time communicated from the first input device of the pilot workstation having the operational failure.
