PEIS Ecology: Integrating Robots into Smart Environments

M. Broxvall, M. Gritti, A. Saffiotti, B.S. Seo and Y.J. Cho

Abstract
We introduce the concept of Ecology of Physically Embedded Intelligent Systems, or PEIS-Ecology. This is a network of heterogeneous robotic devices (PEIS) pervasively embedded in the environment. A PEIS can be as simple as a toaster and as complex as a humanoid robot. PEIS can exchange information at different levels of abstraction, and share both physical and virtual functionalities to perform complex tasks. By putting together insights from the fields of autonomous robotics and of ambient intelligence, the PEIS-Ecology approach explores a new road to building assistive, personal, and service robots. In this paper, we discuss this concept, describe a first realization of it, and show an implemented use-case scenario.
