Guidelines to make safe industrial robot systems

    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    Several requirements are related to the safety of industrial robots. This report points out typical safety challenges and shows sources to find safety requirements. The implementation of a robot cell contains several processes, which are realised concurrently: documentation and requirement process according to Machinery Directive, robot design and risk assessment process according to robot standards (ISO 10218-1 and ISO 10218-2) and design standard (ISO 12100) and functional safety process according to functional safety standard(s) (ISO 13849-1).
