2015 Research Highlights, Project for developing and evaluating efficacy and safety standards of lifestyle support robots

Points of Interest

As expectations rise for the practical use of robots in daily life, AIST has established a safety evaluation standard (ISO13482), test methods, and certification schemes for robots, which have not been established until now. Furthermore, AIST has established the “Robot Safety Center” as the world’s first base for conducting consultations, tests, and evaluations on the safety of robots.

Based on the results of safety verification technology for lifestyle support robots, the center has thus far certified 7 robots, and 4 of these companies have begun to sell their robots.
