Preface: Ubiquitous Robotics (UBIROBOTS): Workshop at the UBICOMP 2012 Conference



Craig I. Schlenoff, Edson Prestes, Abdelghani Chibani, Yacine Amirat


Ubiquitous robots (UBIROBOTS) are smart software or physical service providers within ambient intelligence environments. The integration of these robots within cloud computing and ubiquitous computing technologies will enhance our daily lives. Ubiquitous robots, as cognitive entities, are intended to provide various value-added services compared to traditional systems. They are able to coordinate their activities with other physical or logical entities, move around, sense and explore the environment, and decide, act or react to the situations they may face anywhere and anytime. A UBIROBOTS 2012 workshop was held on ubiquitous robotics research in conjunction with the Ubiquitous Computing (UBICOMP) 2012 international Conference. The workshop was established with the main objective of facilitating discussions and build a bridge between two distinct research populations; namely, people working on ubiquitous computing and related topics, and people working on robotics and artificial intelligence. The paper gives an overview of the workshop.
