Structure of robot standardisation activities
The very dynamism of the Robotics sector means that technical standardisation plays a significant role within it; new possibilities and technological developments in robotics need to be reflected in the relevant standards.
Current robot standardisation activities
Our current robot standardisation activities within ISO/TC 299 (until 31 Dec 2015 ISO/TC184/SC2) predominantly focus on safety aspects.
"Energy performance for industrial robots“
VDMA Specification "Energy performance for industrial robots“ – now available in English language
Separate ISO Committee for robotics
For the international robotics standardisation activities a separate Technical Committee (ISO/TC 299 "Robotics") was established on 1 January 2016.

Possible collaboration of humans and robots in shared workplaces without perimeter guarding opens up new possibilities and concepts in industry and production. The standardisation and legal situation allows for human-robot collaboration (HRC) within defined limits.
