On Tuesday, January 12 2012, Herman Bruyninckx, Professor at K.U.Leuven and Coordinator of EURON, visited PAL robotics to give a talk on recent developments of the BRICS project.

The talk topic was about the BRICS Component Model, an effort to identify best practices that can bring structure into software development in robotics, and reduce the complexity of integrating large-scale robotic systems. The core paradigms behind this model are Model-Driven-Engineering (MDE) meta-modeling and the 5C’s:


We at PAL Robotics will be following this effort closely, with an eye on how it can benefit the industry and academia alike.
