Globetouch and CloudMinds to provide connectivity for robots

Globetouch and CloudMinds Technology have formed a partnership to provide connectivity for robots and other artificial intelligence initiatives.

Both companies are making the announcement during Mobile World Congress Americas 2017, a conference and expo bringing together industry leaders to meet and explore new business models in mobile technology.

Globetouch provides connectivity services and IoT platforms for the connected vehicle and the Internet of Things market. 

CloudMinds is creating advanced AI engines in the cloud to advance its mission to “make robots smarter”.

Together, the companies say they will develop cloud-based applications and platforms that will help control robots with rapid motions.

The companies say this will have great implications for the development of autonomous driving, factory robots, shipping port sorting robots and other AI initiatives.

Riccardo DiBlasio, CEO of Globetouch, says: “This partnership is a major step forward for both Globetouch and the AI and IoT communities in general.

“Working with CloudMinds, we will provide full connectivity for many innovative and advanced robotics initiatives that require the ability to control rapid motions.”

Bill Huang, founder and CEO of CloudMinds, says: “CloudMinds is the first cloud robot operator focusing on delivering secure networks and cloud-hosted Artificial Intelligence for robotic services.

“Globetouch is our key roaming and mobile connectivity provider enabling us to offer services at a global scale.”

Globetouch is also sponsoring a Sunrise 5K Run at the conference. And CloudMinds Technology is launching the world’s first cloud robot control unit, Data A1, at the event and demonstrating its cloud robot platform in both Sprint’s exhibition booth and the CloudMind’s booth.
