A world wide web for robots is being shown off for the first time, and will be tested in a hospital setting.
RoboEarth allows the robots to learn and share information with each other.
Scientists behind RoboEarth will put the Robot through its paces at Eindhoven University in a mocked up hospital room, where the robot will complete a series of tasks, including serving drinks to patients.
The aim of the RoboEarth is that eventually, both robots and humans will be able to upload and share information with one another via the cloud database, which will act as the common brain for all machines.
Rene Van de Molengraft, the RoboEarth project leader said: "At its core RoboEarth is a world wide web for robots: a giant network and database repository where robots can share information and learn from each other."Return to internet news headlines
