In intelligent environments, robots interact with devices distributed throughout the environment and get across heterogeneous information by means of communication technologies. Service robots will enrich all parts of people's lives and be the foundation of intelligent environments. The computing trends of today namely, the smaller size, higher performance, ruggedness, and standardization have brought this closer to reality. This article explores a few possible future scenarios robots can be utilized.
