Abstract

Japan has involved several social problems, e.g., large scale disasters and aging of infrastructures, and the robots working in a special environment are expected for the countermeasures. For the development of the robots, though there are many foundmental studies, less number of proven application in actual fields in Japan. Therefore, in order to accerelate the utilization of the robots, we need not only the development of technology but also the enforcement of comprehensive social system including the robot's operation ability and management system. In the aim of this, New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), had launched a research project of 'Investigation on standardization and safety regulation for the special environments robots and enhancement of their competitiveness[1]' in 2012. The project has been carried out by International Rescue System Institute (IRS) under the cooperation with Mitsubishi Research Institute (MRI) and Japan Robot Association (JARA). In this paper, the project will be introduced.
