Periodic Reporting for period 1 - Daedalus (Distributed control and simulAtion platform to support an Ecosystem of DigitAL aUtomation developerS) Result description Overstepping the constraints of current PLC technology and IEC-61131 standard, Daedalus exploits the already existing features of the IEC-61499 international standard for distributed automation to propose
IEC 61499 Taxon title IEC 61499 Taxon description The specification of IEC 61499 defines a generic model for distributed control systems and is based on the IEC 61131 standard. Search keywords IEC
Open APIs and Communication Protocols Comments IEC-61499 is open and interoperable by design. From within IEC-61499, interfaces to other platforms can be developed in C++ to generate specific APIs.
Daedalus developments are based on the only existing international standard for distributed industrial automation, the IEC-61499. The standard already exists in more than one deployed implementations. During the project an open and international standardization action will be coordinated, leading to the creation of a CWA (CEN/CENELEC Workshop Agreement).
