August 22, 2014

The eScop acronym stands for Embedded systems for Service-based Control of Open manufacturing and Process automation . It is a project aimed at overcoming current drawbacks for the shop floor control level, including MES and deterministic/real-time control, with the goal of implementing an innovative approach based on the combination of embedded systems, ontology-based knowledge management and service-oriented architecture.

With ICONICS solutions, eScop has reached their goals for the first level of project implementation and achieved project step one completion. The project has been ranked number one in the ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking (JU) call of 2012 and continues to reach target installation dates with successful integration. Co-funded by ARTEMIS JU and Member States, eScop consists of ten partners from the Czech Republic, Finland, Italy and Poland and is coordinated by FAST Lab at Tampere University of Technology in Finland.

The project was launched in March 2013 and, by January 2014, the first results were successfully provided and lead to the delivery of requirements and specifications for both technology and concepts constituting the basis for the design and implementation of the overall eScop architecture.
