Researchers are now finding ways for robots to utilize cloud computing as a means of accessing immense amounts of data that would allow them to perform a variety of flexible roles.

James Kuffner, associate professor of the Robotics Institute in Carnegie Mellon University and a member of the Google Car Project, is exploring various cloud computing ideas for robots, which includes using small mobile devices as Internet-enabled brains for robots. His colleagues also showcased an Android-powered software that “allows an Android phone to control robots based on platforms like Lego Mindstorms, iRobot Create, and Vex Pro.”
