An ongoing project to develop common protocols for machine-to-machine (M2M) communication will create new business opportunities and bring added value to commercial robotics solutions, according to its lead researchers.
The $29.16 million A2Nets project (which is scheduled to run until 2014) is designed to help sensors, actuators, machines and electronic devices communicate with each other more effectively.
If successful, the project could drive down development costs for robotics companies and improve interoperability across the machine world. Further, standardization supports the market take-up of innovation, by acting as a bridge between research, innovation, and market. …
