              We are on the cusp of a new great era of exploration, of the most important planet we know. This book introduces and formalizes the topic of using increasingly capable robotic explorers for our home planet. We have long used robotic spacecraft to explore space, the moon, the othe...r planets of our solar system, and their moons. At least one of our spacecraft, Voyager, has left the solar system, and is still returning data on interstellar space. Unmanned explorers precede human ventures into space, and have been to many more distant locations than we have. We can use long operational time platforms such as aerostats, flying drones, underwater drones and such for exploration of the remote reaches of our home. Even now, drones are being deployed into hurricanes. Multiple cooperating systems, non-homogeneous, are enabled by advances in communication, computation, and smart sensors. Software advances in clustering and swarm behavior enable the deployment of autonomous systems. It is an exciting time. Our own planet has been extensively but not exhaustively explored by humans, from the depths of the sea to the highest layers of the atmosphere, and to the four corners of the Earth. Now, with the emergence and maturation of advanced robotic technology and big data techniques, we can do more. It is increasingly valuable to collect, store, and manage massive databases of information on our own planet. These data can be used to develop and refine models of our environment and ecosystem, which may be critical to our survival.

              Personal Robots of the 1980's inspired hopes for the future. This was triggered by the R2D2 Robot of the Star War series, itself based on the three service droids of the early Science Fiction movie, Silent Running. At the same time, personal computers were emerging as affordable ...and easier to use. The excitement and the technology reached a tipping point. Before this time, robotics mainly meant large hydraulic units that manufactured cars. Now it came to mean personal companions. The expectations were limitless. It took, as it always does, longer than we thought. The initial units were termed pc's on pc's

              This book is about the topic of Mobile Cloud Robotics. Cloud Robotics emerged in 2010. This leverages the fusion of multiple technologies, such as the Internet of Things, mobile robotic platforms, Multicore Graphics Processing Units, and the Cloud platform. The Cloud concept invo...lves virtualizing the compute element, as we'll explain in detail later. Mostly, we will focus on mobile robots, as opposed to robotic assembly, and warehousing. At the heart of the problem is a computation-communication-power usage trade-off. We will look at the integration of these topics, with a roadmap and a defined architecture. The Cloud-supplied services augment the more limited computation resources embedded in the mobile robot. It provides services on demand. These services can be related to data storage, downloading code, or computation. This allows a relatively simple and constrained architecture to have vastly greater resources. We will extend this concept. We can build a swarm of robotic platforms, not necessarily homogeneous, that can self-organize into a cluster computer, using, for example, the Open Source Beowulf software from NASA. There is no reason the Cloud server has to be static, it can be a member of the swarm. The swarm members will share an architecture, differing only in their sensor payload (This is one usage model). The Swarm mothership can host the cloud, wherever the swarm happens to be. I use the term
