ubiquitous robotics

Contributor(s): Stan Gibilisco

Ubiquitous robotics is the design and deployment of robots in smart network environments in which everything is interconnected. In this context, the word "ubiquitous" can translate as "omnipresent and pervasive."

Ubiquitous robotics is considered the mechatronic counterpart of ubiquitous computing, the growing trend towards embedding microprocessors in everyday objects so they can communicate information. Ubiquitous robotics has emerged as a convergence with networking, robotics, and AI (artificial intelligence). The field is sometimes called the third generation of robotics, after the first generation (industrial robotics) and the second generation (personal robotics).
