    We present a concept of a ubiquitous industrial robot. It has been defined to consist of technologies of artificial intelligence, ubiquitous computing, sensor network and industrial robots. The advantages compared with current intelligent robots are that they are more autonomous and they have cognitive skills. A ubiquitous robot is interoperable with all sensors, computers and other devices around it. One important factor is the natural interaction with humans. The ubiquitous approach is more common in consumer applications but still new in the industrial environment, even if many research efforts are being made. We also present an example of a ubiquitous robot: the isle of automation.
