Imagine that you are a structure of valuable data, and wherever you are going needs to receive this data in order to keep up, be in sync with everything around. If you use your car it will be pretty similar as if you are using a point to point connection, what if you car breaks?
American author, inventor, Google’s director of engineering and forward-looking prognosticator Ray Kurzweil once wrote, “We won’t experience 100 years of progress in the 21st century – it will be more like 20,000 years of progress (at today’s rate).” If he’s correct, then the revolution in robotics that’s just beginning to pick up steam is likely to transform the world as we know it in very short order. What does this mean for industries of the future?
Have you heard of augmented reality or virtual reality? As wikipedia puts it, augmented reality (AR) is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. There is a lot of research […]
The MyRobots.com cloud monitoring service is officially FREE! All references to the initial token system (where payment would be required for data transfer) were removed on May 31st. This means that the current data transfer and storage service will remain free for all. Additionally, we noted that the concept of […]
The Global Cloud Robotics Hackathon 2013 is currently taking place. The hacking marathon where participants compete to create the best cloud monitoring robotic application started on April 6th and will be ending on the 14th of the same month. So far 29 teams from all around the world are hard at work […]
Cloud robotics is proving to be the most natural and efficient way to create and manage modern robotics technology. Robots are no longer limited to their physical, onboard components, instead, they are able to access an ever-broadening array of Internet resources. Last year, I gave an interview with RoboticsTrends.com on the state […]
MyRobots.com is introducing Alerts! Effective immediately, you can now define alerts for all your robots so they can react to their environment and signal you if there is anything worth your attention. What is an alert? In MyRobots.com terms, an alert is a message sent once a certain condition is […]
The 2013 Global Cloud Robotics Hackathon has been announced! This year, the organizers are addressing the issue of robot remote monitoring via MyRobots.com: Robots are intended to be autonomous agents that go about minding their own business and accomplishing their tasks. However, no matter how advanced a robot is, it can always mess […]
