This paper is an overview of the work being performed by the ISO committee TC184/SC2 "Robots and Robotic Devices". SC2 is developing safety standards for robotic applications in personal and medical care, as well as revising existing industrial robot standards with requirements for new applications. A key driver of the new standards is the need for safety guidelines for human robot interaction, as the new applications involve much more extensive HRI behavior than previous generations of industrial robots. The paper summarizes the content of a revision to ISO 10218 for industrial robots, the development of a new standard ISO/NP 13482 for service robots in personal care, and discusses future work in standards for medical care robots and other areas. © Springer Science & Business Media BV 2010.
