Standardization is an important consideration in the integration of robots in factories
because of the need of know the risks of working with robots and determine
the guidelines for working safely.
The goal of the ReBORN project is to demonstrate strategies and technologies
that support a new paradigm for re-use of production equipment in old, renewed
and new factories by designing processes easier and straight forward shortening
Nowadays the research related to the field of human-robot interaction has
gained importance and it seems interesting to use this concept in the re-designing
of the factories. A human operator and a robot performing tasks jointly provide
to the factories the best features and skills of each one. It is noteworthy that this
approach between a human operator and a robot entail several risks that shall be
considered and avoided by applying the corresponding safety standards.
Therefore, the work consists in mapping for the existing standards related to
this field in order to apply them in the re-designing of the factories as well as
assess if some safety and reliability concept is missing for use the collaborative
robots given that the concept is relatively new and, if it is necessary, to propose
some news standards.
