Today, the Internet has become a resource where human users expect to find answers. If Web information and services are so useful for human users, then why not share these resources with autonomous software and robotic systems? A significant barrier to realizing this goal is the mismatch in the design and operation of robotic systems when compared to Web-oriented paradigms such as service-oriented computing. In this article, we introduce both developmental and operational paradigms, whereas robots can be outfitted with Web-oriented software interfaces that give them access to universally standard Web resources.
