Safety-critical advanced robots: A survey

Abstract : Developing advanced robotics applications is now facing the confidence issue for users, which is a main limitation for their deployment in real life. This confidence could be justified by the use of dependability techniques as it is done in other safety critical applications. However, due to specific robotic properties (such as continuous human-robot physical interaction or non deterministic deliberative layer), many techniques need to be adapted or revised. This paper reviews the main issues and research work in the field of dependable robots, making the link between the dependability and robotics concepts. It also presents main challenges for increasing robot dependability.
