The Standing Committee for Standards Activities (SCSA) under the Industrial Activities Board (IAB) of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society has been actively working with the research and industrial communities and other Standards Developing Organizations (SDOs) to identify areas in standards for robotics and automation that are ripe for standardization.
The scope of the activities of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society’s Standing Committee for Standards Activities (RAS-SCSA) is to formally adopt and confirm best practices in robotics and automation as standards. The Standing Committee will work with interested members of RAS in supporting standards defining activities in both established, mature application areas and nascent, emerging technologies related to robotics and automation. Within this scope, the RAS Standing Committee for Standards Activities shall pursue the following objectives:
• promote common measures and definitions in robotics and automation
• promote measurability and comparability of robotics and automation technology
• promote integrity, portability, and reusability of robotics and automation technology
