After four years of research, we will be showcasing RoboEarth through a demonstrator that includes four robots collaboratively working together to help patients in a hospital. These robots will use RoboEarth as a knowledge base, communication medium, and computational resource to offload some of their heavy computation. Do not miss this great event!

We presented RoboEarth at ROSCon 2013. It was really a great developer conference with a lot of technical details, awesome crowd, cool robots, and loads of fun! Our talk also included a live demo of a Roomba doing real-time 3D mapping on the Cloud. Here is the video of our talk:
In the video above, ETH Zurich’s Master student Vladyslav Usenko shows how the RoboEarth Cloud Engine (nickname: Rapyuta) enables a basic, low-cost robot like the iRobot CREATE to perform full 3D mapping in real-time.
The RoboEarth team organized a Cloud Robotics Workshop at the eu Robotics Forum, 19-21 March, Lyon, France. The event was very well received.
For more information, have a look at the first part of the workshop, featuring local and remote talks from Moritz Tenorth (TU Bremen), Alper Aydemir (KTH Stockholm), Séverin Lemaignan (LAAS-CNRS), Ibrahim Volkan Isler (University of Minnesota, remote), M. Ani Hsieh (Drexel University, remote), Guoqiang Hu (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, remote), Matei Ciocarlie and Kaijen Hsiao (Willow Garage, remote), Shuichi Nishio (ATR Japan, remote), and Ken Goldberg (UC Berkeley, remote):
