Current procedures to assess safety via biofidel measurements still allow a wide variation of interpretation.
In particular, test-sample selection and test execution is highly subjective and thus can lead to different safety assessments.
In-line with the COVR goals to provide standardized procedures we propose to work on the basis of safety assessment through a structured approach for Inter-laboratory comparison.
This includes quality-assured procedures for safety evaluation of contact situations between a human and a robot as well as homogenized approaches for application evaluation, i.e. agreed procedures and protocols for test-sample selection.
By performing these structured comparative evaluations across several inspection laboratories, we expect to provide valuable insights to homogenize and systematize the evaluation processes.
This will contribute to obtaining EU-wide comparative safety evaluations across testing laboratories.
