RobMoSys envisions an integrated approach built on top of the current code-centric robotic platforms, by applying model-driven methods and tools. RobMoSys will enable the management of the interfaces between different robotics-related domains in an efficient and systematic way according to each system’s needs.

  • RobMoSys aims to establish Quality-of-Service properties, enabling a composition-oriented approach while preserving modularity.
  • RobMoSys will drive the non-competitive part of building a professional quality ecosystem by encouraging the community involvement.
  • RobMoSys will elaborate many of the common robot functionalities based on broad involvement of the community via two Open Calls.

The RobMoSys Academy provides a comprehensive set of online training material and tutorials to get familar with the RobMoSys methodology and tools!

RobMoSys was running from January 2017 to December 2020.

Eclipse Projects Contributions

Eclipse Papyrus4Robotics

Papyrus4Robotics is a graphical editing tool for robotic applications that complies with the RobMoSys approach. It manages complexity of robotics development by supporting composition-oriented engineering of robotics systems and separating the task into multiple tiers executed by different roles. It is based on Eclipse Papyrus, an industrial-grade open source Model-Based Engineering tool. Eclipse Papyrus has notably been used successfuly in industrial projects and is the base platform for several industrial modeling tools.

Eclipse SmartMDSD

Eclipse SmartMDSD is an Eclipse-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for robotics software development. The SmartMDSD Toolchain provides support and guidance to apply best-practices for the development of individual software building blocks, as well as their composition to robotics applications and systems. This project will maintain the eclipse-based tooling with its internal implementation (e.g. meta-models, code-generators).
