ASTM WK34434

    New Test Method for Standard Test Method for Evaluating Emergency Response Robot Capabilities: Mobility: Confined Space Voids with Complex Terrain

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E54.08 | Committee E54 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    The purpose of this test method is to quantitatively evaluate the mobility of robots in maneuvering in voids while being remotely teleoperated in confined space with controlled environmental conditions.

    These test methods were developed specifically for emergency response robots, they may be applicable to other application domains. They can be used to ascertain operator proficiencies during training. They can provide practice tasks that exercise robotic control, including actuators, sensors, and operator interfaces. They can also provide performance objectives for the corresponding subsystems on the robots.
