The Standing Committee for Standards Activities (SCSA) under the Industrial Activities Board (IAB) of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) has been actively working with the research and industrial communities and other Standards Developing Organizations (SDOs). The standardization efforts are formally being pursued under different Working Groups (WGs), with RAS as the official sponsor.
The goal of the IEEE-RAS Ontologies for Robotics and Automation Working Group (ORA WG) is to develop a standard ontology and associated methodology for knowledge representation and reasoning in robotics and automation, together with the representation of concepts in an initial set of application domains. The standard will provide a unified way of representing knowledge and will provide a common set of terms and definitions, allowing for unambiguous knowledge transfer among any group of humans, robots, and other artificial systems. To date, the working group has over 130 members containing a cross-section of industry, academia, and government, representing over twenty countries.
IEEE ORA WG Meeting
Location: Room 32, Stockholm Waterfront Congress Center, Stockholm, Sweden
Date: 13:00-17:00, 20 May 2016
The focus will be on the the recent work of the Industrial Robot Ontology study group. The chairs are:
The WGs welcome your comments and participation in this standardization process. To be involved in the activities of the standards committee, neither RAS nor IEEE-SA memberships are mandatory.
