What is MyRobots?
MyRobots.com aims to connect all robots and intelligent devices to the Internet. Through the MyRobots App Store, we augment their capabilities so they can do more, enabling them to be remotely monitored and controlled. We strive to make cloud robotics a reality accessible to everyone and everything.
You can think of MyRobots as a social network for robots and smart objects (i.e. Facebook for robots). In the same way humans benefit from socializing, collaborating and sharing, robots can benefit from those interactions too by sharing their sensor information giving insight on their perspective of their current state.
Follow these steps in order to quickly connect your robots to MyRobots.com:
- Sign Up to create your MyRobots.com account.
- Add tokens to your account (for free!)
- Add your Robot to your account
Once your robot is registered you will be presented with instructions in order to set up the connection on the robot's side.
We are working hard to bring compatibility to as many robots as possible, so chances are that your robot is already supported. See the Compatible Hardware section in order to learn more about compatible robots and how you can start reaping the benefits.
API for Advanced Users
If you are making your own robot or have a robot that is not yet supported, head to the API section in order to learn how to get your robot to interact with MyRobots.com. Once your robot is ready, you can share your code and insight on the Forum and it could even be selected to become an officially supported robot.
Robots can be made public in order to share their data with the world but if a robot is made public it needs to be appropriate for a general audience. Vulgarity or offensive content will not be tolerated in public robots since we want to keep a friendly atmosphere.
