The development and maintenance of standards for exoskeletons and exosuits. 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 organizations having mutual or related interests.
Current standards and exoskeleton evaluations typically evaluate one artifact at a time and look at steady state performance. This practice supports combining artifacts together to examine transitions between tasks.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
