The ESPRIT project 6457 (InterRob) has as its first goal the development of standardized interfaces and their software implementation for ISO-10303 (STEP) and DIN-66312 (IRL). The project is a natural continuation of previous ESPRIT projects in the same area, namely CAD*I and NIRO. The InterRob approach is based on standardized models for product geometry, kinematics, robotics, dynamics and control, hence, on a coherent neutral information model of the process chain from design to manufacturing. The second goal of the project is to increase the accuracy of off-line programmed robots. The results are demonstrated in industrial applications for ship building (robot welding) and airplane engine building (robot thermal coating of turbine blades).
