What is the Topic Group about?

Robots are the result of integrating a wide range of technologies. With sophisticated software components and complete subsystems of ever-increasing functionality becoming more and more available as commodity products from other sectors (mobile devices, communications, automobile driver assistance systems), the success of robotics will crucially depend on the ability to manage the integration of these complex systems into powerful and cheap robots.

We identified the need for a systems engineering approach which goes well beyond the current state-of-the-art, including systematic processes, methods, and tools to create robotic systems for real-world applications.This topic group focuses on:

This topic group provides input to the Multi-annual roadmap (mainly section 5.2, Systems Development) of the euRobotics aisbl, the private side of the SPARC public-private partnership in context of Horizon2020.
