The assumption that robots need to be able to run for 20 hours on a charge seems arbitrary. Presumably it would depend on the cost effectiveness of robots. If they are cheap, then why not have five robots that all run for two hours then charge for eight, working two two-hour shifts per day?

In the NHL, hockey players work in 40- to 45-second shifts, then go to the bench recharge. Nobody is trying to improve the NHL by developing new players that can play a whole game with just the period breaks and timeouts.

With robots there need not even be any loss of continuity. The robots in the charging station could be receiving all the same inputs as the in-service robot as if they were living it in real time.
