Rapyuta, the RoboEarth Cloud Engine, is a Platform as a Service framework for robots. Each robot connected to Rapyuta will have a secured

 

computing environment (rectangular boxes) giving them the ability to move their heavy computation into the cloud. In addition, the computing

 

environments are tightly interconnected with each other and have a high bandwidth connection to the RoboEarth knowledge repository (stacked


circular disks)”.

The Rapyuta environment is open sourced; create a box and let your Robot train.
