Abstract : Ubiquitous and traditional service-provider platforms and frameworks are non-flexible and standardized.
But ubiquitous environments are dynamic and variable. New service-provider platforms should be capable of
handling such changing conditions. Specifically, a flexible and reliable network framework that adapts to various
service components is necessary. Towards achieving this goal, this paper proposes a network-based intelligent
humanoid robot (NBIHR) consisting of intelligent software components. The framework of an NBIHR requires
reliable and stable network connection with real-time response between software components. In the developed
service platform, intelligent software components work on the resources that are distributed in the network, and the
NBIHR uses the results from the resources. In this way, the NBIHR is able to provide high-quality and intelligent
service to users. In this framework, TCP/IP-based interface and middleware CORBA (Common Object Request
Broker Architecture) are designed to integrate software components into an NBIHR system. The performance of
the developed system is studied to demonstrate its effectiveness.
