Abstract: Robotic systems have made their impact on human life in unexpected ways. Earlier robotics systems were thought as units which work independently of each other then came the idea of connecting them through a network. Later it has been identified that rather than connecting the robots through a network it will be more powerful when they are connected through the Cloud. With this the learning from one robot can be processed remotely and mixed with information from other robots. Since the cloud can have all the computation and memory stored remotely, all of the endpoints can be lightweight, and there is a huge collective benefit. These robots can address billions of behaviors and learn how to do important things quickly. This study aims at learning the architecture of cloud robotics and the potential benefits of the Cloud offered to the cloud robotics. The paper also discusses the challenges and direction of future work in the field of cloud robotics.
