Proposed Standard Supports Robotic Training Systems

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

According to ASTM member Anton Koretskov, the proposed standard (WK84838) will help to ensure that hardware and peripherals from different manufacturers can work seamlessly, allowing for greater flexibility in building and configuring robotic training systems.

Additionally, the proposed standard will address issues of safety and cost-efficiency to training systems.

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

Koretskov notes that the committee is looking for interested people who want to participate in the development of the proposed standard. The committee is particularly looking for original equipment manufacturers of robots and robotic training systems, as well as STEM educators.

ASTM welcomes participation in the development of its standards. Become a member at
