This paper introduces R&D activities in IoT (Internet of Things) focusing on the fusion of the Internet and robotics. The ubiquitous networked robotics (UNR) combining multiple robots with sensor networks, smartphones, wheelchairs, etc. is described. It includes a few standardizations of the UNR platform allowing to bridge robot components and service applications. The “Innovate!Osaka” for promoting the global innovation is also introduced.
