CALL FOR PAPERS
Robots are an indispensable part of modern production facilities. In the future, robots will also become more common in daily life. Currently, however, there is a lack of standardization w. r. t. hardware/software platforms for robots, leading to a vast landscape of isolated, incompatible, task-specific and, thus, non-reusable solutions. Consequently, there is a need for new engineering methodologies for the design, implementation, and execution of software for robotic platforms.
Model-Driven Robot Software Engineering (MORSE) is a promising research field combining Software Engineering and Robotics. Its objectives are to introduce model-driven development methodologies for the development of robot software. At the same time, formal methods should be transferred to robotics because "robot apps" must be certified and verified. MORSE attempts to fill this gap.
Submissions are encouraged, but not limited to, the following topics: (1) Robotic Platforms: MDA, Models, Processes, and Tools. (2) Models for and Modelling in Robotics. (3) Robot Ecosystems and Total Cost of Ownership. (4) Model-Driven Quality Assurance of Robotic Systems.
