Abstract

The paper describes the application of cloud computing in the field of robotics where the location of one robot can be obtained by the other robot by consulting database housed in the cloud. The robots are allotted to transport the jobs lying on the floor to the given spaces. It is assumed that each job has a particular destination where it is to be kept. Cloud minimizes calculation overhead of the robots as the cloud calculates the shortest path of pickup of the jobs and transportation to the given spaces for both the robots thereby reducing the need of heavy processor for the robots. The robots use the storage of the cloud and so they can get the data they need by querying the cloud.
