Standards Working Groups - Manipulation


To develop test methods for evaluating the manipulation capability of remotely controlled ground robots conducting emergency response operations. Currently, there are two main categories of manipulation operations anticipated which are evaluated in standards developed by this group.  The first is locating and aiming of the robot's sensor payload (e.g., a camera) and any associated illumination.  The second is the use of the manipulator to interact with items encountered in the environment, such as picking them up or placing them in a specific location.
