Open Architecture Controls: The Key to Interoperability

Published

Abstract

Integration costs for industrial robots are two to four times the cost of the robots themselves. As manufacturers work toward ever shorter product cycles and lower production costs, integration costs for manufacturing systems is becoming increasingly important. NIST has worked with the Robotics Industries Association to evaluate interface standards that would reduce those integration costs for industrial robots.
