Visit ERF’s Workshop on Safety Engineering in Robotics Software and Programmable Electronics
March 22 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
“Safety Engineering in Robotics Software and Programmable Electronics” – a workshop organized by the RobMoSys Project coordinator Huascar Espinoza from CEA.
If you are interested in finding out about what is the state of the practice in safety of robotics software and programmable electronics and share your ideas about how to improve safety engineering in the robotics industry, then visit this workshop
on March 22nd 2019 from 14:00 – 15:30, in the Grand Ballroom B
The development of robotics systems for operation in proximity to and/or in collaboration with humans raises new safety issues, which are exacerbated by the increasing complexity of software and electronics hardware. Despite the core role and awareness of standards, the usage of available safety recommendations for software and computer hardware development and deployment is rather low in the robotics industry.
Standards such as ISO 13849-1 (Safety of Machinery – Safety Related Parts of Control Systems) and (ISO) EN/IEC 62061 (Safety of Machinery – Functional Safety of safety-related electrical, electronic and programmable electronic control systems) provide well-proven practices to evaluate risks and to define safeguards and electronics protective measures. In rehabilitation or surgical robotics, the medical devices regulation applies with or EN/IEC 62304 (Medical device software – Software life cycle processes) and functional safety levels can be defined using EN/IEC 61508 (Functional Safety of Electrical/Electronic/Programmable Electronic Safety-related Systems). However, these standards are sometimes considered to be too time-consuming and expensive for adoption, and designers often short-cut them by using alternate solutions (e.g. safety controllers or safety PLCs).
This workshop will bring together industry and academia, practitioners and researchers, to discuss the current practice in industry to perform safety engineering of electronics systems in robotics, and discuss the needs for a holistic approach to design, test, deploy, operate and evolve safe software and hardware systems, by still fostering the robotics market growth. As RobMoSys and COVR H2020 projects want to propose some tools and services for ensuring software safety in robotics products and applications, the expected workshop outcome is to get some practical lines guiding the choice and development of such tools and services.
