The cloud has come up now as an infrastructure and a rich collection of Internet-accessible resources. It has a high potential to provide noteworthy benefits to robots and automation systems. This review is organized around four possible benefits: big data, cloud computing, collective robot learning and human computation i.e. use of crowd sourcing to tap human skills for analyzing images and video, classification, learning and error recovery. Cloud robotics utilizes elastic computing models, in which resources are dynamically allocated from a shared resource pool in the cloud, to support task offloading and information sharing in robotic applications.
