ROS-Industrial quality-assured robot software components

Deliverables

Experiences from test and analysis in the ROS project.

A collection of experience reports, including published papers, accumulated during the project to enable influence on future research in quality assurance technology and methods.

Reports from the Education Board, including Annual Summary reports from ROS-I Schools, engineering programmes, and instructor training - version 3.

Quality assurance process and community management in ROS (intermediate).

ITU will provide a combination of existing and novel processes (new research results), which will be checked against (and improved for) industrial applicability by TEC, FHG and ABB. The implementation into the community will be executed by TUD with help from all partners.

Program-analysis-based validation infracstructure for ROS (demonstrator, supported by a report) version 1.

This work is structurally parallel to Task 3.2 and addresses the same issues, using a separate set of highly novel methods: static analysis methods (as opposed to dynamic testing). If the expected research results are achieved, these novel methods will result in a more complete coverage of the state space, meaning that potential errors are much more likely to be found.

Demonstration on online content (MOOC), supported by a report.

The training material of the ROS-I schools shall be prepared as open online courses and be published on relevant MOOC platforms to support the ROS-I School and ROS-I Academy activities. The task is also to set up methodologies, best practices, and infrastructure to build specialized advanced trainings and corresponding certificates in addition to basic training programmes.

Launch (demonstration) of Internship Brokerage system, supported by a report.

To give the different stakeholders (industry, developers, community, students and interns) the possibility to meet, exchange and promote their ROSIN activities, a brokerage platform will be established and maintained. This platform should allow for finding partners to work on FTPs, for students to find internships, for industry to find developers and professionals.

Testing-based validation infrastructure for ROS (demonstrator, supported by a report) version1.

Automated testing, with continuous monitoring, is the first line of defence in modern quality assurance strategies. This task adapts and tailors state of the art testing methods, including methods recently proposed by researchers, for the purposes of the ROS project.

Website for submission of FTPs launched

A website for the submission of FTPs will be set up and broadly disseminated. The website will contain templates and information about the evaluation procedure and granting conditions. Furthermore, some excellent examples of FTPs will be described on the website in order to set the standard for new FTPs to be submitted. The website will be continuously open throughout the duration of the ROSIN for the submission of FTPs.

Data management plan

Regarding the Open Source character of ROSIN a data management plan will describe the way research data are stored in a repository and publications will be made Open Access.
