PERSONAL CARE ROBOTS - UNDERSTANDING THE REQUIRED SAFETY STANDARDS

Robots are nothing new on the factory floor, but personal care robots are an entirely different type of robot, taking their place alongside humans in their daily activities. While industrial robot standards consider the end user to be a trained person, personal care robots can be used around anyone. The environment that these robots can be used in is also much less predictable and the tasks of a personal care robot are not as well defined and repetitive like in the industrial world. As a consequence, the standards for ensuring they do their work safely are different than those for industrial robots, as everyone from a baby to the elderly can now be at risk. In this whitepaper, we’ll describe those standards and what manufacturers and businesses need to be aware if they plan to enter this new, rapidly growing market.
