With the rapid development of artificial intelligence,the global robot market continues to grow quickly,and the capabilities of robots have evolved from performing fixed operations to the ability to autonomously sense,understand and make decisions.However,to achieve large-scale application of robots,robots need to have powerful computing capabilities and low deployment costs under the constraints of limited power consumption.Using edge computing to provide more cost-effective services,enhance the computing power of the robot body,and achieve large-scale deployment is the key to achieving this goal.The challenges faced by robot systems with the edge enhancement were analyzed,the concept of cloud-native robot systems based on edge computing was proposed,and four feasible technical solutions for implementing the system were discusses.The cloud-native robot system is the inevitable direction for the development of robot systems from intelligent systems based on robot ontology to cloud-edge-end fusion multi-robot collaborative intelligent systems and the key technology for promoting the large-scale application of robots.

Key words: robot, robot 4.0, cloud native, edge computing, robot operating system
