Object Management Group to Hold ‘Computer Standards for Robotics’ Information Day
By Robotics Trends Staff - Filed Dec 31, 2004
The Object Management Group’s (OMG’s) Robotics Working Group is inviting interested parties to an Information Day devoted to Computer Standards for Robotics on Monday, January 31, 2005 in Burlingame, CA. The event will focus on on the integration of robotics systems based on modular components.

Keynoted by i-Robot and anchored by OMG members including the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) and the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), and supported by JARA (the Japan Robot Association), this day-long program includes presentations on robotics software, the need for standards, and the benefits that the industry can obtain from OMG’s open standards for software design and networking. Presentations and technology demonstrations by robotics companies and research institutions in the US and Japan will review the state of the art, industry trends, and viewpoints on standardization. A panel discussion on the future of standardization in robotics will close the day.

Standards Speed Development and Lower Costs
The Robotics Working Group invites interested companies to join them in defining a robotics domain architecture and standards suite based on OMG’s Model Driven Architecture (MDA; http://www.omg.org/mda) and Unified Modeling Language (UML; http://www.omg.org/uml), and taking advantage of the group’s other standards for networked real-time, small-footprint/embedded, and high-assurance systems. In addition, these model-based OMG specifications will build upon and integrate interface and message standards from established industry groups, establishing liaison relationships to ensure smooth transfer of technologies between these other organizations and OMG.
