Is 2012 the year that robot applications take root?

January 2, 2012

Three competing ideas on a theme of using the cloud to provide apps, updates and libraries of robotic data are reviewed in depth here.
  – MyRobots, by Canadian RobotShop, will attempt to be a combination app store and Windows-like environment to permit robotics products to be monitored, repaired, and updated seamlessly.
  – Robots App Store, by San Francisco serial entrepreneur Elad Inbar, is developing their portal to be an online marketplace for selling robot apps.
  – RoboEarth, an EU public-private consortium, aims to use the internet to create a giant open source network and database repository that can be accessed and updated by robots around the world.
