CRAOS | Collaborative Robots Applied in Open Spaces

Organizers Survey Form

Our Mission


The aim of CRAOS is to develop procedures for guiding safety validation of collaborative robots in open spaces, in particular exhibitions and trade fairs. The reason for focusing on this specific domain of application is that robots in public spaces impose higher risks of unintended human-robot contacts compared to well-studied shop floor applications. In addition, collaborative robots in public spaces are difficult to validate, as relevant standards and directives are not sufficiently applicable.


As collaborative robotic applications applied in open spaces do not necessarily need to satisfy the requirements of the EU machinery directive, exhibitors and trade fair organizers are in an uncertain legal situation in case of harming humans. To overcome this uncertainty, we aim to collect wide spread experiences through questionnaires from different domain stakeholders, such as exhibitors (manufacturers), trade fair organizers, visitors and governance bodies.


The collected data concerning current regulations, technical and organizational measures as well as the diversity of visitors are used as a basis to develop two protocol drafts - for collaborative serial robot systems and sensitive mobile manipulator systems respectively - to identify requirements satisfying safety conformity in open spaces.

Survey results
The survey results will be provided to the project consortium in aggregated, anonymized form as summarized statistics. Results can also be published.

In our systems, metadata such as the time of access and your IP address are recorded in the background. This data is stored separately from the survey data and cannot be linked to survey responses. Metadata are used to ensure the quality and security of our services. We process metadata out of a justified interest as a website operator as an independent data controller. This data remains with JOANNEUM RESEARCH and is not passed on to third parties.

Cookies are set and processed by this website, which are needed to operate the survey service. You can find further information about our handling of cookies at https://www.joanneum.at/en/joanneum/disclaimer/dataprotection/
