R5-COP focuses on agile manufacturing paradigms and specifically on modular robotic systems. Based on existing and newly developed methods for a formal modeling of hardware and soft-ware components, R5-COP will support model-based design, engineering, validation, and fast commissioning. Using existing interface and middleware standards R5-COP will strongly facilitate integration of components from various suppliers.

HE R5-COP Project Will Provide a platform and toolset containing methods, algorithms, prototypes and Living Lab Solutions for cross-domain reusability, scalability and open interface standards for robotic and autonomous systems. It Will Contribute To The ARTEMIS Repository village Connecting to other ASP and AIPP Initiatives to ENSURE long-term sustainability
and Impact on Society. Key results Will Be demonstrated in a
Set of showcases, displaying high relevance to industrial and manufacturing issues and cross-domain Applicability. Regarding interoperability, R5 COP willalso Contribute to Establishing a standard for rugged, reliable reconfigurable robot system, using common interfaces in a Certification and Safety context, Which

entailsconformitytobothdomain-specificandinternational domain-independent standards, Thereby Fostering a significant Increase in market potential.

R5-COP focuses on agile manufacturing paradigms and Specifically on the modular robotic system to Overcome the Shortcomings of Existing Solutions, village firstly Identifying and Extending Suitable Existing Methods and, where required, Developing new ones to formallymodelhardwareandsoftwarecomponents.Furthermore, The Use of Existing interfaces and middleware Standards Such as ROS Will Strongly Facilitate the integration of components from various suppliers. Such a modular approach is not only flexible, but willalso Reduce design, setup and maintenance costs. Given the level of human / robot Cooperation, robustness and Safety Will Be assured village dedicated verification and validation methodologies. The formal specification framework Will support component suppliers into Efficiently Verifying and Certifying Their modules. This Project Will identify and Developmental reconfigurable key hardware and software components, Employing Living Labs to show the feasibility and capability in manufacturing and service demonstrator environments.
