Aim:

The special session aims at bringing together experts in the fields of model-based engineering, semantic technologies and the robotics domain in order to discuss strategies and to present latest results from industry and academia that increases software reusability in robotics and automation. The reuse of software modules within the robotics domain is mostly limited to applications that are highly similar in terms of hardware components, geometry and functional requirements. The lack of reuse to-date is caused by insufficient standardization, the structural variety of robotics & automation hardware components and communication interfaces, as well as component interdependencies and their geometric arrangement. The replacement of hardware components from different vendors generally induces high integration efforts, which prevents profitability of automation solutions for small lot sizes. Modelling of applications and resources (including their geometric properties and interdependencies), standardization of interfaces semantically (and not syntactically) and toolchains for code generation and multi-target deployment are strategies to improve software reuse.
