After demonstrating to the world the Internet of Things capabilities over the past few years, the Internet of Robotic Things (IoRT) is ready to change everything, making our lives more efficient and productive.
Using the new concept, automated devices will be able to communicate efficiently and data will be transferred over the Internet. Internet of Robotic Things is the result of combining the Internet of Things (IoT) and robotics. In this concept, autonomous machines can communicate with one another through data collection from different sensors, enabling them to perform complex tasks.
In general, the concept can be applied in a range of industrial environments, combining three layers: a device or robot that collects and monitors data; analysis of the data using local and distributed intelligence; and combining the sensor data with intelligence to determine a plan of action.
Among the applications of these technologies are warehouses, where robots can safely navigate and handle various tasks, smart homes, in which the various devices can efficiently map each apartment and coordinate tasks between them, construction, where robots can replace humans for dangerous tasks like loading and unloading heavy equipment, and even in healthcare, where dedicated medical robots can monitor patients, according to analyticsinsight.net.
