Regli is co-PI for ARM functional interoperable compiler project

The functional interoperable compiler bridges the gap between goal-oriented programming and robot communication protocols through the canonical robot command language. The functional interoperable compiler bridges the gap between goal-oriented programming and robot communication protocols through the canonical robot command language.

The Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing collaborative (ARM) has selected Siemens Corporate Technology and the University of Maryland to work on a technology project deemed critical to advancing robotic automation in manufacturing.

The project is one of eleven projects announced Jan. 29. ISR Director Bill Regli (CS/ISR) is a co-principal investigator for the research project, “Functional Interoperable Compiler.”

The research will create a high-level, standardized declarative language for robot programming. With this new language, workers of any skill level will be able to specify robot commands, using automated tools to translate functional specifications into procedural code that can execute tasks in various robotic platforms.

ARM is the nation’s leading collaborative in robotics and workforce innovation. Structured as a public-private partnership, it accelerates the advancement of transformative robotic technologies and education to increase U.S. global manufacturing competitiveness.
