RealCaPP: Real-time capable Plug & Produce communication platform with OPC UA over TSN for distributed industrial robot control

  • The industry of tomorrow is changing from central hierarchical industrial and robot controls to distributed controls on the industrial shop floor. These fundamental changes in network structure make it possible to implement technologies such as Plug & Produce. In other words, to integrate, change and remove devices without much effort at runtime. In order to achieve this goal, a uniform architecture with defined interfaces is necessary to establish real-time communication between the varying devices. Therefore, we propose an approach to use the combination of OPC UA and TSN to automatically configure real-time capable communication paths between robots and other cyber-physical components and execute real-time critical tasks in the distributed control system.
