ROBIN aims to address the demand for flexible robotics in industrial environments and the necessity to integrate robots and automation equipment in an efficient manner. For this, the ROBIN project will focus on developing and releasing a bidirectional, reliable and structured communication bridge between ROS and CODESYS, a softPLC that can run on embedded devices and that supports a variety of fieldbuses, and even OPC-UA. The developed software will allow the parametrization of ROS modules through IEC61131-3 programming languages and also streamline the interoperability between ROS and robotic hardware or automation equipment, fully empowering the Industry4.0 paradigm of Plug’n’Produce.
