In the past years within the steel industry a growing emphasis has been put on fully automatic production lines with a high degree of reliability. The main challenge in designing of these systems is to foster the production process efficiency while improving operators working condition and maintaining the same proper safety level. The CESAR project aims at elaborating a Reference Technology Platform for the cost effective development and validation of safety related embedded systems. In the CESAR project Danieli Automation SpA, in collaboration with the University of Bologna and University of Trieste, has put focus on the development process of a safety system for steel industry robotic applications. In this paper the achieved results related to the exploiteness and usability of the RTP during the development process are reported.
