Rapyuta: The RoboEarth Cloud Engine is an open source project to enhance a robot’s computing power using the cloud. Instead of doing computations locally the robot will use a cloud platform to help speed up problem solving and enable communication with other robots to enhance A.I. features such as unknown object identification.
Offloading processing hardware from the robot itself lowers construction costs and prolongs the expected lifetime. The project is only in its very early stages, a helpful video is included below explaining the concept. [rapyuta]
