Abstract

Internet of Things (IoT) provides a strong platform for computer users to connect objects, devices, and people to the Internet for exchanging or sharing of information with each other. IoT is growing rapidly and is expected to adapt to disciplines such as manufacturing, agriculture, healthcare, and robotics. Furthermore, the new concept of IoT is proposed and shown, especially for robotics areas as Internet of Robotics Things (IoRT). IoRT is a mixed structure of diverse technologies such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. However, to promote and realize IoRT, digitization and digital transformation should be proceeded and implemented in the robotics enterprise. In this paper, we propose an architecture framework for IoRT-based digital platforms and verify it using a planned case in a global robotics enterprise. The associated challenges and future research directions in this field are also presented.
