How to make sure regulation helps and not hinders I&M robotics? Policy issues in Robotics for Inspection and Maintenance
One of the essential factors for widespread robotics adoption, especially in the inspection and maintenance area, is the regulatory landscape. Regulatory and legal issues should be addressed to establish effective robotics deployment legal frameworks. Common goals of boosting the widespread adoption of robotics can only be achieved by creating networks between the robotics community and regulators.
To this end, we are inviting Freyja Van Den Boom, Maarit Sandelin and Carlos Cuevas to discuss how cooperation among regulators and the robotics community can be fostered and what are the most pressing legal challenges for the inspection & maintenance application area of robotics. We will be investigating how to ensure the accessibility of objective information and enhance the capacity of regulators to comprehend technical aspects, risks and opportunities of robotics in I&M. We hope to leave the workshop with industry insights and specific areas for improvement for the future, which as a project we will continue to explore in our activities.
Join this interactive workshop organised by Robotics4EU and Rima Network where we will explore how the landscape of inspection and maintenance robotics & regulation can be strengthened!
