TG Safety – Challenges and Innovations

Close this search box.

TG relation: TG Safety

Areas mainly addressed: Ethical, Legal, Social, Economic implications of robotics, Autonomy, Collaborative Robots and cloud robotics, Safety of robotics systems 

Main questions to be answered: 

· Which Safety Innovations are necessary to overcome current limitations in robotics? 

· How can novel safety approaches facilitate the modularization and possibly also the certification in robotics? 

· Which concreate steps do we need to take as robotic safety community? 

WS Description: Following up on our workshop 2022 in Rotterdam we would like to continue our discussion on major challenges, use-cases, technologies and innovations for the safety of robotics systems. The goal is to identify major topics that can be addressed by the TG Safety community within euRobotics in the comming years. 

Intended outcome: Workshop expected to create a roadmap or white paper, Workshop discussion topics of common interest, success stories, use cases, etc 

Approach: Part 1: 3-4 short pitches addressing major challenges/innovations a 10-15 min 

Part 2: Interactive fish-bowl discussion with the participants and the speakers. 

Contributors: Roles: All speakers are invited to give a short presentation/statement (10-15 min) and participate in the interactive fish-bowl discussion in the second half of the workshop.
