This TG is in the beginning phase and until elections can be held, the interim coordinators of this Topic Group are:
Magnus Albert (SICK)
José Saenz (Fraunhofer IFF)
To join the Topic Group please go to SPARC Main in the menu above.
Then go to My Topic Groups and follow the instructuons.
This will take less than a minute to complete and you will then have access to the SPARC support site
Welcome to the Topic Group "Safety" focusing on the safety of robotic systems!
This TG was initiated at the ERF 2020 in Malaga and is currently seeking support from euRobotics members to gain full rights as a Topic Group.
You can download the information letter and template for Letter of Support here.
The driving force behind this TG is that safety is at the heart of all robotics applications. As robotic systems begin to act more autonomously in unstructured environments, the complexity of these applications is growing and imposes novel challenges for safety. Tackling these will require novel approaches and methods of safety engineering and risk management.
The Topic Group “Safety” represents the core of expertise in the field of Safety within robotics and contributes to the success of the European robotics community by promoting and addressing safety-related topics to facilitate market success of novel robotics applications and technologies.
