Robotic Arms (Manipulators)

Background
Accelerating technology and increased adoption is creating growth in robotic arm and manipulator usage in different industries. As industries move to utilize this technology to increase efficiency, productivity, precision, and safety to humans; new issues are arising in its adoption. Some issues include Integration with legacy systems, human-machine interaction, big data and analytics, artificial intelligence.

Current status
ASME formed the Manufacturing and Advanced Manufacturing (MAM) Standards Committee which will oversee manufacturing and advanced manufacturing. Initial work is being done to develop robotic arm terminology and performance specifications for robotic arm capabilities to aid purchasers.

Task Group on Nomenclature for Performance – Identify potential gaps in existing standards as it relates to robotic arms performance nomenclature.
Task Group on Performance Standards – Identify potential gaps in existing standards as it relates to robotic arms performance.

Meetings and Events
Subcommittee on Robotic Arms (Manipulators) - meets periodically via teleconference. In addition, Face-to-face meetings in conjunction with the Mobile Unmanned Systems (MUS) Standards Committee during the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Week are being planned.
