Suggestions Requested for Rescue Robot Standards
October 27, 2005
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has asked ASTM International to work with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and other involved parties to develop voluntary consensus standards for urban search-and-rescue (US&R) robots.
To assist in this effort, first responders are encouraged to send suggestions for technologies to focus on or US&R robots to consider to email@example.com.
For further information, the project Website lists the robot categories and specific areas of inquiry at www.isd.mel.nist.gov/US&R_Robot_Standards.
