Ensuring Safety for Collaborative Robotic Applications in Public Spaces

Our Mission

CRAOS – Collaborative Robots Applied in Open Spaces

The aim of CRAOS is to develop procedures for guiding safety validation of collaborative robots in open spaces, in particular exhibitions and trade fairs. The reason for focusing on this specific domain of application is that robots in public spaces impose higher risks of unintended human-robot contacts compared to well-studied shop floor applications. In addition, collaborative robots in public spaces are difficult to validate, as relevant standards and directives are not sufficiently applicable. The proposed outcome of this COVR Award are two protocol drafts - for collaborative serial robot systems and sensitive mobile manipulator systems respectively - to identify requirements satisfying safety conformity in open spaces.

Our Consortium

Austria’s Robotics Engineers for Safety in Public Spaces

The project is carried out by two leading research organisations in the field of robotics in Austria.

Fraunhofer Austria Research

In particular, Fraunhofer Austria Research has expertise on analyzing and optimizing collaborative robotic systems in industrial environments with a human-centered perspective. The research activities focus on a holistic system design considering not only technical aspects but also different customer needs.

JOANNEUM RESEARCH – ROBOTICS

JOANNEUM RESEARCH ROBOTICS is an expert when it comes to safety assessment of collaborative robotic applications. They are founder of the only Austrian Robotics Evaluation Lab which validates robot safety properties and performs accredited human-robot collision measurements.
