This paper presents a novel service-oriented approach to robotics manufacturing. The idea is that the automation software is composed of a hierarchy of services. In order to decide how to execute manufacturing tasks, the scene graph of a robotics cell (i.e. the physical objects, devices and spatial relations) is inspected to retrieve the current situational context of a manufacturing application. Based on that context, the best suitable strategy to accomplish a task is chosen. Hence, this context-aware service-oriented approach facilitates flexible robotics manufacturing.
