Recent and upcoming OSGi specifications such as Promises and PushStreams provide great tools for asynchronous programming in Java. This is particulary useful for programming robots, where issuing a command is inherintly aync from observing the effect. In this talk we will present an asynchronous OSGi service for controlling a Kuka robot. Moreover, OSGi modularity allows us to easily integrate our robot with other systems. For example in our research, we connect several sensors to the robot, and use deep learning techniques to let the robot learn new behaviors from this sensor information.
