The Robotic Industries Association (RIA) is hosting its 25th National Robot Safety Conference, Oct. 14-16, 2013, at the Marriott East Hotel in Indianapolis, IN. The Conference focuses on the new American National Robot Safety Standard (ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012), the first update to the standard since 1999.

RIA robotic safety standard was discussed at PACK EXPO 2012. Courtesy: CFE MediaDeveloped by RIA, the new standard is now harmonized with the International ISO 10218:2011 standard for robot manufacturers and integrators. Key issues to be addressed include risk assessment, machine safety controls, practical industrial robot safety, robot user case studies, and a primer on functional safety. A special exhibitor expo featuring leading robot safety products will be held on October 15.
