A Review of Robotics Through Cloud Computing

Rohit Mittal, Nidhi Mishra, Vibhakar Pathak


The review of Cloud computing and robotics is cloud based development and use of computing technologies in field of robotics. It is a style of computing in which resources are provided “as a service” over the internet/robots to users who need not have control over the technology infrastructure. With cloud computing user can access files and use applications from any device that can access the internet. Cloud computing is a computing area, where a large pool of system is connected in a private or public network to provide dynamically scalable infrastructure for application, data and storage. The review process was adopted by surveying the 42 research articles in last 6 years (2010-2015) for extraction of information about 7 sub issues. Review process was adopted in the area of API stack management, Robotics sensor management, Network computing management, Storage management, Hybrid cloud system management, Infrastructure management and Security management.The first paragraph should describe the background / motivation of Area / Sub Area selected, Current Scenario in general. Second Para should state the details of review process adopted, categorization of Issues / sub issues, extraction of information and analysis. It should briefly tell how many research papers ranging from which year to which year have been considered. Third Para should discuss the outcome of review such as various solution approaches, their advantages and limitations, strengths and weaknesses.

Keywords: communication, information, architecture, authentication
