Researchers create cloud-based brain for robots

Researchers create cloud-based brain for robots | Technology in the Future | Scoop.it

A group of European researchers has released the first version of a cloud computing platform for robots that will help them take advantage of powerful virtual resources. Essentially, they’re treating robots like any other device — desktop, tablet or mobile phone — running web applications, only robots can learn from each other and can do a lot more than just update screen displays.
The project, carried out by a team at ETH Zurich, is called RoboEarth and its linchpin is a cloud software platform called Rapyuta. The way it works is pretty simple at a high level: robots communicate with a cloud-based application platform that carries out computation tasks and connects to a cloud database full of information such as maps, images, language, as well as to other web services. The robots themselves are pretty much hardware terminals equipped with sensors and moving parts but limited on-board processing power or data storage.

Shaun Dewar's insight:

Robots have been speculated to be the furure for many years now, this artcle informs us that a cloud has been created for robots. The robots are planned to be treated just like any device we use today eg. mobile phones. Robots will certainly be part of the future just a matter of when.

Hayley Regalado's curator insight, March 21, 2013 6:42 PM

This article discusses technology that can project a touch screen on any given surface. The technology is called 'OmniTouch' and is similar to the X-box Kinect technology. This technology is not going to be a major technology in future because it is close to being available now. The prototype for this product is complete and is currently undergoing tests. The advantage of OmniTouch technology is the ability to increase the size of projection. According to the article, OmniTouch has the capability of choosing optimised display settings for every new surface. The current issue with the prototype is the cumbersome size and shape. This problem is being addressed in future prototypes.

 

In my opinion this new technology can be perceived in two ways… Either it will seem intriguing to users but will decrease in popularity as technology enters an era predominantly surrounded by voice control and gesture control; or the technology will bring great success to mobile computing and portability. This article will contribute to my research into projected touch technologies such as the Ericson’s Company spider device.
