May 6, 2017 – EIT Digital has launched the Robot IoT Interface, which aims to enable different kind of robots and machines to connect to different Cloud platforms.

Developed with the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) and Poitiers-based startup Agileo Automation, the product is scheduled to be ready for market launch by the end of 2017. Once the gateway has been created, other SMEs will be able to benefit from this solution simply by accessing the Robotic Innovation Facilities (RIF) areas of a network of European Innovation Centers that are going to be created by EIT Digital in the meantime, they say. “The global problem that we want to address with Agileo is the interoperability within the factory of the future by investigating the different infrastructures allowing machines to machines as well as machines to clouds connection,” CEA research engineer Selma Azaiez explains.
