There is intensive research and development activity in providing and making use of semantically meaningful information in robotic systems. In particular, besides the widespread use of semantic technology by academia, there is a growing interest in it, in the context of possible or actual industrial applications. We intend to summarize the current state of (European) robotic ontology ecosystem, find out commonalities, agree upon ways of result exchange and discuss possible business models for this kind of “product” or “service”.
The workshop will give room to representatives of academy, industry (notably, ABB and KUKA), and standardization bodies (IEEE Ontologies for Robotics and Automation group).
Agenda of the workshop
10.45 – 10.50 : introduction (5 min)
10.50 – 11.40 : presentations by the participants (50 min)
• industry (20 mins)
• academia (20 mins)
• standardization (10 mins)
11.40 – 12.00 : discussion about the industrial use of robotic ontologies, moderated by industry representatives (20 mins)
12.00 – 12.15 : summary, conclusions, plans for the future (15 min)
