Robots as an intelligent services ecosystem

Robots as an intelligent services ecosystem

RAISE is an interoperable information model, based on the OPC UA standard, that provides technical (e.g. predictive maintenance) and non-technical (e.g. fintech, insurtech, regulatory technology) services to the end-users through interconnected equipment, such as detecting anomalies or insuring productions.

The solution

The objective of the RAISE™ project was to turn the manufacturing servitisation trend to the benefit of robotic manufacturers developing robots as a service (RaaS) platform demonstrating the possibility for 3rd party providers to offer value-adding services (e.g. prognostic maintenance, production intelligence, insurance, and payment services..) to Industrial Robots manufacturers by means of new open interoperability standards (e.g. the Robotics open standard by OPC UA)


Since Henry Ford's Model T, the dream of manufacturers was to be able to offer recurring services on the products made instead of selling "one-off" products, for example by making payments based on the product output, the time of use of their machinery or creating products that can be served with "circular” services that users could subscribe to, generating recurring profits, from installation, maintenance, management and finally to circular disassembly at the end of the life cycle of the product. With the advent of AI, blockchain and IoT converging at the very edge of smart machines, the “Product as a Service” Economy is finally coming to life.


The development were ended on schedule with a full installation at the Mitsubishi Electric HQ showroom for Industry 4.0 in the new Italian HQ in VIMERCATE, Italy, where a permanent RaaS showcase has been activated based on the RAISE project demonstrator interworking with the SCADA layer provided by ICONICS™ and different Mitsubishi Robots using the OPC UA Robotics companion specification

    What prompted us to collaborate with MYWAI was its broad vision already projected forward, towards a concept of 'Equipment as a Service', demonstrating that it is a further step that is already feasible, supported and brings value to the Robotics Industry.
