Professor Huosheng Hu: From Cloud Computing to Cloud Robotics (从云计算到云机器人)

Cloud computing provides abundant resources and computing power, which in turn enables today’s robots to service us everywhere. Through wired or wireless networks, autonomous robots can access cheap and readily available information in the cloud and receive commands via communication networks for their remote operation. The system reliability should be guaranteed so that robots in the cloud can be accessed by their users 24 hours a day with minimum maintenance. This talk briefly overviews the key challenges and opportunities of cloud robotic systems in real-world applications. In particular, the recent development of tele-rehabilitation, tele-healthcare, remote surveillance at Essex is introduced, and some preliminary results are demonstrated via video.
