Robotics - Performance criteria and related test methods for service robots - Part 2: Navigation (ISO 18646-2:2019, IDT)
This document describes methods of specifying and evaluating the navigation performance of
mobile service robots. Navigation performance in this document is measured by pose accuracy
and repeatability, as well as the ability to detect and avoid obstacles. Other measures of navigation
performance are available but are not covered in this document.
The criteria and related test methods are applicable only to mobile platforms that are in contact with
the travel surface. For evaluating the characteristics of manipulators, ISO 9283 applies.
This document deals with indoor environments only. However, the depicted tests can also be applicable
for robots operating in outdoor environments, as described in Annex A.
This document is not applicable for the verification or validation of safety requirements. It does not
deal with safety requirements for test personnel during testing.
