The report “Inspection & Maintenance Robotics Standardised trials and validation” is presented by SPRINT Robotics.
This report introduces the Standard Test Methods for robot performance that form the basis of developing standardized trials and validation. It also provides recommendations as to how the members of SPRINT Robotics may take advantage of them for improving the performance of Inspection and Maintenance (I&M) Robotics. In this document, we use a wide definition of I&M that includes everyday I&M tasks (e.g. operator rounds), I&M tasks mandated by regulations (e.g. tank floor inspection), and robotic support of human I&M tasks (e.g. transporting/holding equipment/supplies).
