Many robotics applications require robots to communicate with each other, with a human operator, or with a remote server. The IEEE Robotics and Automation Society's Technical Committee (TC) on Networked Robots focuses on research issues related to robots connected to a communication network. The TC was founded in 2001. The name "Networked Robots" was adopted in 2004. The original focus of the TC was on Internet-based teleoperated robots. At the moment, most of the research activity in our TC revolves around robotic networks and cloud robotics.
