RoBIoTICS – The new promised land of convergence – Part II
RoB-IoT-ICS – Convergence of Robotics and “Internet of Things” (IoT) domains
Hi! In the first part of this series of blog posts, I spoke about two aspects of the new land of convergence – RoBIoTICS and the convergence between robotics and biology domains. Today, I look at the convergence of robotics and the Internet of Things.
Internet of Things and Robotics are both highly synergistic domains. So what does the intersection of both mean?
Robotics and IoT are much more than connected devices. Robotics is actually a continuum: It moves from pure automation, which basically has devices sensing and acting, to robotics which connects and senses its environment and then acts in the physical world. Over the last ten years, a lot of communication technologies have been developed that directly supports the robotics industry sector. Some robotics sectors are actually using some direct research from communication domains such as facial recognition or natural language processing. [...]
