Abstract-In the domain of industrial automation the interoperability of devices gains importance. One major trend is the usage of Ethernet based solutions to connect devices at all levels of a company. Through a common interface technology in all levels of execution, a central control mechanism or business flows can control an entire workflow. This paper describes a new RESTful oriented device architecture, called RODA. RODA will be compared against Web Services based service-oriented devices architecture. It describes how Web services technologies can be adapted to fulfill the requirements of automation, embedded, and real-time domains. The development process in these domains can gain an advantage, with the usage of middleware components based on well-known internet technologies. Furthermore, the created interfaces can be easily reused in other applications and merged with other interfaces to combine a bundle with an additional benefit. The applicability of RODA has been verified on a mobile robotics testbed, where robots are communicating via different wireless interfaces. I
