Assessment of Programmable Electronic Systems with Particular Reference to Robotics
The Commission of the European Communities (CEC) is funding a joint project between seven organisations. These organisations already have programms of research in the field of Programmable Electronic Systems (PES’s) and in particular robotic safety. The CEC funding provides the opportunity to collaborate in the exchange of information which will, hopefully, lead to harmonization of safety and reliability work in this field across Europe. Particular emphasis in the project is being placed on the provision of guidance on safety, reliability and availability assessments of PES’s. This guidance will aim to ease the task of PES safety integrity assessment by considering the design, construction and manufacturing criteria, and the needs of the designer, user and regulatory authority.
