The Internet's next evolution will require the current Internet (which concentrates on information access) to combine with an Internet of Things. Consequently, Web services that operate on information will need to seamlessly interoperate with services, and perhaps robotic capabilities, which interact with physical objects. While the paradigm known as service-oriented computing has adopted standard interfaces that aggregate data-centric services, the development of similar standard interfaces for distributed robotic services (that have access to physical objects) has been a challenge for academic and industrial researchers.
