Robot internet allows data sharing between robots

A research project in Europe called the Roboearth aims to make data sharing between the robots universal. It will be a new version of the internet, just for robots, such that once a task is learned and completed by a robot, the same skill will be available to all robots via downloading. The project which started a year ago and performed under the funding of European Commission’s Cognitive Systems and Robotics Initiative, aims to give the robots ability to allow them to perform tasks which were not part of their original programming. Robots will share the images and object models, maps and world models, object manipulation data, and more, in order to completely define a learned task.
