Since its emergence in 2010, cloud robotics has been a major trend in today’s robotics, however, there are some real-time robotics applications for mobile robots that are not able to use this paradigm due to their sensitive latency requirements. In this paper, hybrid cloud robotics is proposed as a processing model utilizing both edge and cloud computing in robotics. This model is implemented for two computation- intensive algorithms, object recognition and SLAM, for a robot with a light single-board computer on-board. Download here.
