OPC UA Companion Specification for Robotics (OPC Robotics) - Part 1: Vertical integration

This OPC UA Companion Specification Robotics (short: OPC Robotics) was created by a joint working group of the VDMA and OPC Foundation. VDMA 40010-1 defines an OPC UA Information Model for the representation of a complete motion device system as an interface for higher-level control and evaluation systems. A motion device system consists of one or more motion devices, which can be any existing or future robot type (e.g. industrial robots, mobile robots), kinematics or manipulator as well as their control units and other peripheral components. The main use cases for OPC Robotics, Part 1 are condition monitoring, asset management, preventive maintenance and the vertical integration into higher level production IT systems.
