RAS Standards Upcoming Meeting- To establish a study group on Semantic Map for Autonomous Robots (SMART)


RAS Standards Meeting will be held virtually on 27 October 2020 9:00am-11:00pm EDT

The IEEE Standards Association under the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) is reviewing the proposal to establish a Study Group, Semantic Map for Autonomous Robots (SMART), to investigate the feasibility of creating standard for common representation of semantic map data for robots and validation under common parameters, with the goal of enabling robots to be more intelligent, and be able to plan and execute high level robotic tasks within real-world environments.  

The SMART Study Group will investigate the potential for standardizing semantic map data model, data representation and data formats to express the relation among the data model entities. The data model expresses cognitive information about the environment of various types of robots equipped with artificial intelligence in the form of a global map containing local maps and transformation through the absolute and relative coordinate system. The standard data format permits the exchange of information among the mobile robots in a standardized method. Moreover, the standard contributes to promote development of experimental methodologies for mobile robotics as a valuable tool for facilitating comparison, benchmarking, and evaluation of semantic maps obtained from different systems.

The expected benefits of the established standard for semantic map data representation will facilitate various robotics applications such as autonomous robot navigation, factory logistic systems, industrial and agricultural robots, defense and rescue robots, and service robots for domestic application.
