Cloud robotics to change the way people live in the future
GTI 5G and Cloud Robotics White Paper discusses the concepts, technologies, market trends, value chains and business models of cloud computing robots, and provides a detailed analysis of how 5G technology will create favourable condition for commercial success’s potential latents.
As cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI) grows and robots become more and more skilled, the cloud computing robots will become popular in the next few years. According to GTI 5G and Cloud Robotics White Paper, the number of cloud robots consumed globally is expected to reach 50 million between 2016 and 2020. By 2025, domestic cloud robots will reach 12%, which will significantly change the way people live in the future.
Cloud robotics will become popular in the next few years.
The benefits of cloud computing will be evident in many areas ranging from logistics, surveillance, entertainment, education to housework. While traditional robots accept orders from controllers, cloud robotics are linked through networks to cloud-based control centers. The combination of AI - big data, and ultra-high performance computing reduces the cost and energy requirements of cloud robotics.
According to the GTI 5G and Cloud Robotics White Paper, Cloud-computing platform for robots, AI and mobile networks are the three major technological elements that support the development of cloud robotics. Specifically, cloud robotics set specific requirements for the network. In addition, the network architecture must have the flexibility to respond to diverse services.
5G is considered as the ideal choice for data transmission of cloud robotics. In addition, 5G network layer architectures and mobile edge computing (MEC) can provide robot applications. Thus, 5G is set to take on the role of an important factor in the success of cloud robotics.
GTI 2.0 was officially launched in February 2016 to expand TD-LTE scale, which accelerates the development of 5G and encouraging convergence. GTI's cloud computing robots work group aims to build a multi-disciplinary ecosystem that removes any barriers and promotes the development of communications and robots.
With the help of the GTI, media and robotics experts are working together to discuss the potential architecture, and develop 5G-oriented robots. The team is also interested in identifying and meeting the connectivity requirements of the cloud robotics. The GTI hopes that 5G networks’ excellent performance, extreme reliability and great flexibility can provide the connectivity for cloud robots in the future, as well as other applications.
Huawei has actively been involved in the GTI’s cloud robotics workgroup project, and has also developed and tested various 5G-oriented applications. The publication of the GTI’s Cloud Computing White Paper has made the successful collaboration between the communications, robotics and artificial intelligence.
