This has been a very eventful quarter for standardization efforts within the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS). Even the virtual nature of the 2020 International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) could not slow down the momentum of the IEEE RAS-led Terminology Harmonization effort, which is bringing together many of the main players in the robotics terminology standardization effort to try to reach consensus on the definition of a set of common terms. During our virtual meeting, the group made significant progress on a roadmap for how to proceed and identified an initial set of terms which will serve as the test case for future efforts. The core terms which the group will focus on are task, action, and environment.
