Beijing: Chinese and American researchers have successfully used cloud computing to link robots with very different specifications in the two nations to communicate with each other and work together.

Using Internet-based computing in which remote servers are networked to share information, the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in Hefei and Pittsburgh's Carnegie Mellon University have tested how robots with very different specifications can communicate with each other and work together.

Hefei-based "KeJia" can understand human language and has reasoning abilities, while Pittsburgh-based "CoBot" is good at analysing large and complex sets of data.

"Kejia" can work as a tour guide and house keeper, according to the researchers.

"Robots based on varied hardware and software have different capabilities and skills," the project's Chinese coordinator Chen Xiaoping was quoted as saying by state-run Xinhua news agency.

By allowing different robots to connect with the cloud to share knowledge and skills, robots can be made more efficient and cheaper to operate, Chen said.

The two universities are now working to apply their achievements to other robots elsewhere in the world, said Manuela Veloso, a professor at Carnegie Mellon.
