IEEE RAS Standards Strategy Update



Craig I. Schlenoff


On September 30, 2018, the Industrial Activities Board (IAB) of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) organized a Standards Strategy Meeting in conjunction with the Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) Conference in Madrid, Spain. The goal of the meeting was to review and refine an overall robotics standards landscape to determine areas in which the IEEE RAS should focus on robotics standards development and determine areas in which IEEE RAS should partner with other standard development organizations. Attendees included many of the IEEE RAS Working Group Chairs, representatives from (International Organization for Standardization (ISO), Robotics Industries Association (RIA), and American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and experts in various robotics fields including autonomous vehicles and industrial robotics.
