Abstract

Since last two decade robotics is one of the emerging, challenging, developing and innovative fields of research among researchers, industries universities. It is very difficult to distinguish robots from other machines; robots can be defined as machines that are capable of perform variety of task with more autonomy and degree of freedom (DoF) than humans. Nowadays healthcare services and systems become very complex and encompass a vast number of entities that are characterized by shared, distributed, and heterogeneous devices, sensors, and information and communication technology. With the advent of Internet of Things (IoT), robots are integrated as a ‘thing’ and establish connections with other things over the Internet. This chapter clearly indicates the long term benefits of human being in healthcare sector, medical emergencies, e-health, etc. using robotics and IoT. Also, the phase of adoption, interaction, challenges for future is to be discussed.
