The paper takes robotics remote sensing as research background. Robotics remote sensing is a newly developed research area. Compared with traditional remote sensing and robotics technology, definition of robotics remote sensing is discussed in the first part. In the second part, the paper combines the latest international and domestic research references and practical robotics application platform. It mainly studies robotics remote sensing on eight-wheeled robot RAT-1 for mine sensing, mobile robot with IR-optical sensor for gas leak detection and source localization, ambient intelligent robot for environmental surveillance, mobile robot for object localization and other hot research points. Because of its new appearance, studies of robotics remote sensing are not matured. So the paper also indicates key problems existed in each application and predicts three most possible development aspects of robotics remote sensing at last.
