Standards and safety in robotics
In this chapter we shall briefly consider three basic European robotic standards. The first document ISO 9946 presents the characteristics of industrial robot manipulators. The second standard ISO 9787 is entitled Coordinate Systems and Motions. The most important and most extensive is the ISO 9283 standard which describes the performance criteria and themethods for testing of industrial robot manipulators.
The first standard requires from the robot manufacturers to clearly specify the characteristics and application requests for their industrial robots. First, the main type of application should be indicated. The standard enumerates the following areas of application: material handling, assembly, spot welding, arc welding, machining, spray painting and coating, application of adhesive, tool manipulation and work inspection or verification.
