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 ramp-up times. 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.
