This paper intends to summarize the main features of the system and principal architectural choices that make GENERIS an OPEN solution for Robot Control System. GENERIS has been developed at the Joint Research Centre of Ispra - Italy, in the framework of an European Commission project was supported by the DG XIII, in order to consolidate years of research experience at the JRC Ispra on advanced robotics control systems.

GENERIS, thanks to its completely opening in kinematics description, is the ideal software platform devoted to control of non conventional robot as well as parallel kinematics structures. After an introduction explaining the project history and its current development and exploitation state, the authors analyze the application. The core of this paper is addressed by explaining the functional model and the architectural design approach, based on scalability, modularity and open system concepts.

Finally, the authors conclude with the GENERIS benefits, its application and the planned development activities ies
