A new standardisation proposal from the ISO TC299 (Robotics) commission managed by Sirris and Agoria on a national level has been evaluated and approved. The new project ISO/AWI PAS 5672 expands and further specifies the test methods for measuring forces and pressures in quasi-static and transient contacts between the moving part of the collaborative robotic device and a human set out in ISO/DIS 10218-2 Annex N.

Decreasing the programming complexity of robots is essential in robot adoption, especially for high-mix low-volume production. While teach by demonstration has been the benchmark for many years, OLRP keeps gaining popularity thanks to its versatility and user-friendliness, and recent evolutions, such as a wider commercial offering and the availability of brand-independent solutions.
