Communication Technologies for Robotics and Autonomous Systems

2020 IEEE Communications Magazine  
Distributed intelligence in robotics and autonomous systems applications heavily relies upon seamless wireless connectivity. In particular, the emerging cloud robotics paradigm aims to employ communication technologies for offloading high complexity computation tasks to the edge/cloud platform. Cloud robotics is considered as one of the mainstream use-case for 5G and beyond networks which requires ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC). Currently, the design of URLLC protocols has

Consequently, alternative approaches that are based on co-design of control systems, inference engines, and communication protocols must be explored. These new approaches are envisioned to enable the rapid deployment of new robotics applications.
