This paper describes initial efforts and ideas towards a robot-agnostic contextual control software architecture for robots cooperating with humans in factory environments. The robot architecture, through the interplay with a middleware (resource-oriented architecture), should enable existing factory IT systems and robots to be interconnected. The aim is that the use of contextual information directly coming from the IT systems together with background knowledge should allow more flexible robot skills which are adaptive to the current context, situation or ongoing task.
