    New Practice for Evaluating Ground Response Robot Logistics: System Configuration

    (What is a Work Item?)

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


    1. Scope

    This proposed Practice specifies the approach and method for identifying and documenting a response robot in terms of both as a complete system and the robots major subsystems and components. This Practice serves multiple purposes, including guiding the users through their respective purposes of evaluating, purchasing, and training with respect to the robot systems. A clearly and comprehensively documented configuration report is essential for these purposes.

    This Practice is developed specifically for response robots. The users include response personnel, robot developers, robot researchers. The Practice also serves as a general references for response operations. The Practice 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.
