Towards a Unified Platform for Agent-based Cloud Robotics

Francisca Rosique, Pedro Sánchez, Diego Alonso, Juan Antonio López

Abstract

This paper describes a platform that aims to design, build, and validate a new generation of cloud robotic platforms that enable agent-based intelligent control of robots deployed in unknown and dynamic environments. The platform will consider: (1) novel techniques for programming reactive plans and robotic behaviours through missions and novel mechanisms for building new behaviours from existing ones, both for experienced and non-expert users; (2) novel multi-layered cloud platform as the infrastructure to maintain a continuous link between the robots acting on a physical environment and their agent counterparts, to provide sensor data from robots to agents, and to provide high-level autonomous decisions from agents to robots.
