London: A world wide web for robots to learn from each other and share tips and information has been developed.

The world wide web, called RoboEarth, will be tested in a hospital setting at Eindhoven University in Netherlands.

The eventual aim is that both robots and humans will be able to upload information to the cloud-based database, which would act as a kind of common brain for machines.

RoboEarth's database stores knowledge generated by humans - and robots - in a machine-readable format.

It will provide software components, maps for navigation, task knowledge and object recognition models.

The system has been developed by research scientists from Philips and five European universities including Eindhoven.

"At its core RoboEarth is a world wide web for robots: a giant network and database repository where robots can share information and learn from each other about their behaviour and their environment," said Rene van de Molengraft, the RoboEarth project leader.
