Standards Activities

The Standing Committee for Standards Activities (SCSA) under the Industrial Activities Board (IAB) of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) has been actively working with the research and industrial communities and other Standards Developing Organizations (SDOs). The standardization efforts are formally being pursued under different Working Groups (WGs), with RAS as the official sponsor.

Most of the active working groups have regular telecons and have physical meetings at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) and International Conference on Intelligent Robots (IROS) each year. All working groups are open to the public. If you are interested in becoming involved in any of the working groups, please contact the working group chair.
