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.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
