Paper Abstract

This paper details the design evolution of an open architecture controller by presenting case studies of how the needs and requirements of end user, application/sensor developer and system integrator influenced the design methodology of the MOSAIC research platform, the first open architecture control supporting advanced capabilities. Degrees of openness such as Pseudo-Open, Piece-Wise- Commercial and Device-Independent are defined and explained in relation to various implementations of that research platform. The integration of sensors and adaptive control algorithms are used to illustrate how the services offered by the various design approaches impact the scope of the control's capabilities. The concepts of Machining Mode, Primitives, Functions and Operations are presented as a framework in which advanced machining capabilities can be categorized and used to ascertain the ease in which they may be integrated on various control architectures. New applications of technology and research results are also discussed offering a glimpse at the possibilities available on the open architecture.
