Summary form only for tutorial. This paper provides an overview on the recent progress and developments in the development of the ubiquitous robot. First the concepts of the ubiquitous robot, which incorporates the software robot (Sobot), embedded robot (Embot) and mobile robot (Mobot), are presented. The Ubiquitous robot, Ubibot, comprising of a core intelligence of a Sobot Rity, perceptive abilities through a variety of Embots, and a personal robot type Mobot called Mybot is presented. Rity, an artificial creature testing robot genome is described in detail including the technique for creating the chromosome which dictates its personality and traits. The technique for evolving a new personality, thus creating a Genetic Robot, is also briefed upon. The nearly limitless possibilities evident in this new paradigm in robotics can be obviously seen.
