ASTM WK49478

    New Test Method for Evaluating Ground Response Robot Sensing: Video Latency

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E54.09 | Committee E54 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    The scope is to quantitatively evaluate a robots capability to convey observed scene, using onboard video sensors, to the operator in a time-critical situation.

    This test method is developed specifically for emergency response robots. The users include response personnel, robot developers, robot researchers, and for emergency response references. It may be applicable to other application domains. It can be used to ascertain operator proficiencies during training. It can provide practice tasks that exercise robotic control, including actuators, sensors, and operator interfaces. It can also provide performance objectives for the corresponding subsystems on the robots.
