The IRIS (Improvement of Robot Industrial Standardization) project is one of 52 projects approved under the first call for proposals for the Community's specific RTD programme in the field of standards, measurement and testing (SMT) (OJ No C 357 of 15.12.1994).

The aim of the IRIS project is to examine the ISO 9283 international standard for manipulating industrial robots (performance criteria and related test methods), which has become European standard EN 29283, with a view to contributing to a general revision which will encourage broader industrial use. Specific goals of the project include:

- Inquiry-based investigation of robot test procedures and equipment as applied in Europe;
- Determination and analysis of user requirements for robot performance criteria, testing procedures and related measuring equipment;
- Classification of different robot test procedures in function of robot applications;
- Improvement of performance criteria, and related measurement and evaluation methods/procedures for industrial robots;
- Further development and validation of automated measurement systems for EN 29283/ISO 9283 standard (including implementation of a software system for performance criteria and testing methods);
- Dissemination of the standard and determination system to European users and manufacturers of industrial robots.

The project will be implemented over a period of two years commencing in February 1996. The IRIS project partners listed below are willing to host applicants for EU Research Training Grants.
