Draft CWA 'Safety in close human-robot interaction: procedures for validation tests' is available for public review and commenting

 

The well-established concept of robots refers to bulky machines confined to the industrial environment, carrying out repetitive tasks. In traditional industrial robotics, the operations of robot and operator are complementary and belong to separated workspaces. In the last years, we are witnessing the increasing implementation of robots and robotic devices in several other domains, such as minimally invasive surgery, healthcare, rehabilitation, agriculture and logistics.

CEN/CLC/WS 018 - Guidelines for the assessment of resilience of transport infrastructure to potentially disruptive events - Commenting phase for the CWA

 

This WS developed the CWA (CEN-CENELEC Workshop Agreement) ‘Guidelines for the assessment of resilience of transport infrastructure to potentially disruptive events’. This CWA describes a methodology for infrastructure managers to properly measure the Level of Service (LoS) provided by, and the resilience of, their transport infrastructure to natural hazards. These steps will ensure that infrastructure managers can systematically identify appropriate resilience enhancing actions and ensure the effective allocation of limited resources.

A new standard contributes to improving the energy efficiency of jet fans

 

At the core of the European Green Deal lies the ambition to make Europe the world's first climate-neutral continent by 2050. As the latest development in this sector, on 14 July the European Commission adopted a package of proposals to make the EU's policies fit for reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 and make Europe climate neutral by 2050. Energy efficiency is one of the pillars of the Green Deal, articulated trough the improvement of the energy performance of buildings and the increased use of renewable energies.
