Communication in robotics system designs is undergoing a transformation as it keeps pace with the fourth industrial revolution, or industry 4.0. In the status quo, robot communications must be robust, accurate, have excellent timing characteristics and neither hinder axis movement, nor be negatively impacted by it. Several important, but disparate, communication interfaces have evolved to meet the stringent requirements of robotics communications and have done so for many years. Increasing speed and bandwidth requirements from robots is starting to exceed the capabilities of these very effective interfaces.
