Dear Roboticist,

This summer of high temperatures is inviting for a cool break, but don't forget to start planning your next trips to our Public Community Workshop in Leuven on September 12th and to our Tutorial at MODELS Conference in Copenhagen on October 16th. 

Don't miss these excellent opportunities to discuss with us and other experts!

We have added a section Community Corner to our wiki. Check this out to get in touch with other features and early adaptors of the RobMoSys methodology.

In this issue of our newsletter we will feature eITUS, our ITP aimed at safety analysis and validation.

And finally we would like to share some impressions of RobMoSys at automatica.

Wishing you a great summer!

Anna Principato
on behalf of the RobMoSys consortium


Join us for our next Open Community Workshop on September 12th in Leuven, Belgium.

The purpose of this workshop is to keep you updated on recent progress made in RobMoSys by the core consortium as well as by the ITPs. Moreover we are keen on a structured dialogue and discussion with the audience about what the challenges are from the point of view of the robotics domain, which are the pain points from a robotics perspective and at the same time learning about YOUR views.

Learn how RobMoSys model-based engineering process helps robotics stakeholders, what technical material is available, and what the expected contributions from the community are.

Find out how does RobMoSys organize models, tools, and software components, and what kind of links we offer to other domains.

What do you think? Will we see you there?

Experimental Infrastructure Towards Ubiquitously Safe Robotic Systems using RobMoSys

The eITUS project aims at creating an infrastructure to assure system safety at design time (analysis and simulation) and at run time (monitoring)

Objectives description:

• integrate existing safety validation tools (FTA, FMEA) with RobMoSys tools.

• develop and integrate new validation tools (simulation based FI).

• perform benchmarking of the tool infrastructure using an industrial case in laboratory.

Expected Impact:

• Potentially large user base: assessing safety is a major concern, the approach builds on standard and accepted technologies (e.g. Gazebo, OROCOS).

• It will contribute with an useful extension to RobMoSys.

• The significant effort allocated for dissemination will help to reach out for potential users.

Community Corner

In this new Wiki section you can constantly find intermediate results of the ITPs, see what is happening to our Integrated Technical Projects (ITPs) of Open Call I or find any other community "early adapter" results.

The Community Corner also provides links to demonstrations - Events Robotic Behavior in RobMoSys using Behavior Trees and SmartSoft (MOOD2BE ITP) - and lists all the opportunities to get in touch with us, for example via the Discourse Forum or at upcoming events.

RobMoSys at automatica

automatica 2018 – the leading exhibition for Smart Automation and Robotics – set new records: more than 46,000 visitors and 890 exhibitors from all over the world were registered. This shows that the automatica is becoming increasingly important on a global level, addressing the future topics of human-robot collaboration, digital transformation in production, and service robotics.

RobMoSys had two talks at  automatica

Gaël Blondelle from Eclipse Foundation spoke at the IT2Industry Forum about Blueprints for business friendly open source ecosystems in the industry

Prof. Herman Bruyninckx, KU Leuven, Francesco Ferro, CEO of PAL shared a talk at Automatica Forum on RobMoSys: Why the future belongs to model-driven robot programming
