Committee Scope

The scope of the committee shall be the development of standards for industrial/commercial robotics, automation, and autonomous systems (i.e.: terminology, practices, classifications, guides, test methods, and specifications). These standards are applicable to, but not limited to, automatic/automated/autonomous vehicles, robotic arms/manipulators, and the sensors used in these systems; for smart infrastructures, advanced manufacturing, logistics and other automation.

The Committee will encourage research in this field and sponsor symposia, workshops, and publications to facilitate the development of such standards. The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM technical committees and other national and international organizations having mutual or related interests.
