RoboEarth teaches robots to learn from peers, pour European fruit beverages

February 7, 2011


European scientists and engineers have developed RoboEarth, the “World Wide Web for robots,” to allow robots to learn from the experience of their peers, thus enabling them to take on tasks that they weren’t necessarily programmed to perform.

Using a database with intranet and Internet functionality, the system collects and stores information about object recognition, navigation, and tasks and transmits the data to robots linked to the network.
