News from another healthcare robotics project
The LIAISON Project, financed by the H2020 project COVR, aims at collecting information about gaps and inconsistencies in existing robot safety standards and legal frameworks so that policy/standard makers can more easily update their regulatory frameworks according to the existing state of the art.
If you are familiar with any of the following standards, please fill out the surveys
that best reflect the robot development you are working on:
