Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


PlugBot was an Austrian research project (2019-2021) in which an architecture to integrate heterogeneous (robotic) systems has been developed. Modeling system capabilities for task execution as atomic skills is a concept that allows semantic unification for orchestration of multiple skills along workflows as well as hardware abstraction and implementation agnostic workflow modelling without taking concrete parameters of the executing devices into account. The architecture and approach has been evaluated in multiple use cases in the manufacturing domain. Future work will include researching the applicability of the concept for mobile robots.
