The objective of this showcase is to show the efficiency gain and the reduction of development time in the context of a robot application development for an end customer by using the BRICS robotics integrated development environment.

The development of robot applications for end customers is a typical activity of SME system integrators and bears significant potential for innovation. The SMEs involved in BRICS will identify a typical application development activity for one of their (past, current, or future) customers, which has been implemented or will be implemented with their standard development tools and processes using their own resources.

It is planned that the SMEs involved in BRICS will do a complete redesign of the identified application development using the integrated development environments of the project and the harmonized hardware and software interfaces. They will record the development process, with all advantages and disadvantages and problems and advances, as neutral and detailed as possible.
