Rapyuta is the online database for the RoboEarth Cloud Engine which is a platform as a service (PaaS). The database is part of the European RoboEarth Project. The project is designed to allow robots to query the database to learn about their environment, build, as well as providing guidance systems.[1] Rapyuta project lead was Mohanarajah Gajamohan.[2]

The name Rapyuta refers to Laputa in Castle in the Sky.[3]

The stated purpose of the project is:

[T]he goal of RoboEarth is to allow robotic systems to benefit from the experience of other robots, paving the way for rapid advances in machine cognition and behavior, and ultimately, for more subtle and sophisticated human-machine interaction.[4]
