Researchers to demonstrate internet for robots
A team of researchers is working on a project to develop a network for robots enabling them to work together and share information.
The network, called RoboEarth, is a giant network and database repository where robots can share information and learn from each other about their behavior and their environment, according RoboEarth website.
A final demonstration will be held at Eindhoven University of Technology on Jan. 16. The demonstration includes four robots collaboratively working together to help patients in a hospital.
The robots use RoboEarth as a knowledge base, communication medium, and computational resource to offload some of their heavy computation, according to RoboEarth.
The project is a jointly developed by five European universities, including Eindhoven University of Technology, and Philips.
