White Paper: Robotics, Automation & Control

Wirelessly Connected Robots from a Compliance Perspective


Once a concept relegated to science fiction, robots have now become a ubiquitous part of everyday life. They now clean our houses, build things, and even perform surgery.

As novel applications for robots continuously evolve, it becomes increasingly complex to ensure that robots are fit for purpose and compliant with legislation.

This white paper explores the challenges involved in the testing and regulatory compliance of wirelessly connected robots as they become more integral to our daily lives. It supports innovators in the product realization process by clarifying the types of testing required for market approval. The paper explores the challenges of defining a robot and the technology used in building them. It also offers suggestions of best practices for wireless testing, EMC testing, and functional safety testing for stationary and service robots.

Finally, it offers consideration on how to standardize testing for robots.
