The technology of the robot represents a national high-tech level and the degree of automation. It is helpful to develop the industry of service robots in China if we know the current situation and development trend of service robots research clearly. Recently, robotic cleaners and educational robots have been in great demand. Entertainment robots and surveillance robots are developed rapidly and the market expands quickly. Medical robots begin to enter the modern life and have played an important role in the modern surgery. To satisfy the great market and shorten the distance between China and developed countries, it is necessary to capture the development trend of the technology of service robots. R&D on service robots should focus on the integrated technologies on intelligence, modularization and network.
