ASTM International is seeking interested parties to participate in the development of a standard for hardware and peripherals used in robotics training platforms.

ASTM International’s F45 committee for robotics, automation, and autonomous systems today announced that it is developing a proposed standard that will focus on the use of hardware and peripherals in robotic training systems.

“The proposed standard can help ensure that robotic training systems perform consistently and reliably across different environments and use cases,” said Anton Koretskov, a member of ASTM International. “The standard will also help enable innovation and advancement in the field by providing guidelines for future development and encouraging new ideas.”

ASTM International said it develops standards for public health and safety, consumer confidence, and overall quality of live. The Conshohocken, Pa.-based organization integrates consensus standards developed with its international membership of volunteer technical experts. It also provides services for manufacturers and other industrial players.

ASTM standard to address collaboration, safety

The proposed standard (WK84838) would help ensure that robotics hardware and peripherals from different manufacturers can work together seamlessly, said Koretskov. This would allow for greater flexibility in building and configuring robotic training systems, he said.

In addition, the F45 committee's proposal would address issues of safety and cost efficiency in training systems.

Koretskov noted that the committee is looking for interested people who want to participate in the development of the proposed standard. ASTM International is particularly looking for original equipment manufacturers of robots and robotic training systems, as well as STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) educators.

The restructured committee on robotics, automation, and autonomous systems (F45) is the new home for standards related to all things automated.
