IEEE Standard for Autonomous Robotics Ontology [WG 1872.2] .
A recent publication at the IEEE Robotics & Automation Magazine presents,
the IEEE1872.2 Autonomous Robotics (AuR) Ontology.
The standard is a logical extension to IEEE 1872–2015 Standard Ontologies for Robotics and Automation, core ontology or robotics and automation (CORA).
The standard ontology specifies the domain knowledge needed to build autonomous systems consisting of robots that can operate in all classes of unstructured environments. The standard provides a unified way of representing AuR system architectures across different R&A domains, including, but not limited to, aerial, ground, surface, underwater, and space robots. This allows unambiguous identification of the basic hardware and software components necessary to provide a robot, or a group of robots, with autonomy (i.e., endow robots with the ability to perform desired tasks in unstructured environments without continuous explicit human guidance). The stakeholders for the standard include robot designers and builders; robotics researchers; robot industry experts; robot users; and policy makers.
