What will we do?
In this workpackage, elements on the shop floor will be converted to plug’n’produce technologies. The goal is to create efficient communication interfaces that allow robots and machines to be almost as easy to use as USB drivers: you just plug and everything will run smoothly.
The horizontal integration of the flexible robotic equipment into the production line will be addressed, simplifying the interface of these systems and saving operators’ time and patience.
Developing Effective Interfaces
Communication interfaces standards will be created.
Robots & Machines
Implementation of missing bridges among interfaces, allowing interoperability of robotic equipment and the environment.
Robot Skill Mapping
Semi-Automatic Device Discovery
Mapping hardware-independent robotic skills to hardware dependent skills primitives.
Skills Mapping at Planning Time
Users will be able to visualize and review the generated system models and hardware-specific skills.
