1. Scope
1.1 Purpose: 1.1.1 The purpose of this test method, as a part of a suite of mobility test methods, is to quantitatively evaluate a teleoper- ated ground robot’s towing capability with the task of grasping loads and traversing a specified route on a flat and paved surface. 1.1.2 Robots shall possess a certain set of mobility capabilities, including towing, to suit critical operations such as emergency responses. This capability would be required to perform such emergency response-related tasks as delivering critical supplies, moving victims to safe locations, or transport- ing suspected packages away from humans. 1.1.3 Emergency response ground robots shall be able to handle many types of obstacles and terrains. The required mobility capabilities include traversing gaps, hurdles, stairs, slopes, various types of floor surfaces or terrains, and confined passageways. Yet additional mobility requirements include sustained speeds and towing capabilities. Standard test meth- ods are required to evaluate whether candidate robots meet these requirements. 1.1.4 ASTM Task Group E54.08.01 specifies a mobility test suite, which consists of a set of test methods for evaluating these mobility capability requirements. This towing-by- grasping test method is a part of the mobility test suite. The apparatuses associated with the test methods challenge specific robot capabilities in repeatable ways to facilitate comparison of different robot models as well as particular configurations of similar robot models. 1.1.5 The test methods quantify elemental mobility capa- bilities necessary for ground robot emergency response appli- cations. As such, the test suite should be used collectively to represent a ground robot’s overall mobility performance. N OTE 1—Additional test methods within the suite are anticipated to be developed to address additional or advanced robotic mobility capability requirements, including newly identified requirements and even for new application domains. 1.2 Performing Location—This test method shall be per- formed in a testing laboratory or the field where the specified apparatus and environmental conditions are implemented. 1.3 Units—The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are mathemati- cal conversions to inch-pound units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. 1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appro- priate safety, health, and environmental practices and deter- mine the applicability ofregulatory limitations prior to use. 1.5 This international standard was developed in accor- dance with internationally recognized principles on standard- ization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recom- mendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
3. Terminology
3.1 Terminology E2521 lists additional definitions relevant to this test method.3.2 Definitions: 3.2.1 abstain, v—the operator’s action of notifying the administrator to withdraw from the test, causing the result not to be reported and the test form to be marked as abstained. Discussion—The operator is the only person who can convey the decision to abstain the test. The abstention may be made when the robot configuration is not designed nor equipped to perform the test. The testing sponsor should make a consistent policy about the time period during which the abstention is allowed. The abstention is granted only before the test, as reflected in the procedure. Discussion—Being marked as abstained indicates that all the parties involved in the test acknowledge the omission of the performance data while the test method was available at the test time. 3.2.2 administrator, n—person who conducts the test. Discussion—The administrator shall ensure the readiness of the apparatus, the test form, and any required measuring devices such as stopwatch and light meter; the administrator shall ensure that the specified or required envi- ronmental conditions are met; the administrator shall notify the operator when the safety belay is available and ensure that the operator has either decided not to use it or assigned a person to handle it properly; and the administrator shall call the operator to start and end the test and record the performance data and any notable observations during the test.
