A rapid deployment big data computing platform for cloud robotics

Duggan, Leigh and Dowzard, James and Katupitiya, Jayantha and Chan, Ka C. (2017) A rapid deployment big data computing platform for cloud robotics. International Journal of Computer Networks and Communications, 9 (6). pp. 77-88. ISSN 0975-2293


The primary contribution of this research is the production of a general cloud robotics architecture that leverages established and evolving big data technologies. Prior research in this area has not released all details of their deployed architectures, which prevents experimental results from being replicated and verified. By providing a general purpose architecture, it is hoped this framework will allow future research to build upon and begin to create a standardised platform, where research can be easily repeated, validated and compared. The secondary contribution is the critical evaluation of the design of cloud robotic architectures. Whilst prior research has demonstrated that cloud based robotic processing is achievable via big data technologies, such research has not discussed the choice in design. With the ecosystem of big data technologies expanding in recent years, a review into the most relevant technologies for cloud robotics is appropriate to demonstrate and validate the proposed architecture design.
