Cloud robotics is a field of robotics that attempts to invoke cloud technologies such as cloud computing, cloud storage, and other Internet technologies centred around the benefits of converged infrastructure and shared services for robotics.

Robots can leverage clouds to do massive data processing and exchange information with other robots in real time. Cloud robotics has the potential of freeing robots from computing constraints and giving robots “big enough brains” to deal with challenging situations that they couldn’t deal with before. Advances in big data are also being embraced by the robotics community to deal with the massive data generated by sensor-rich robots.
