IEC 62849:2016 applies to mobile household robots and provides performance testing and evaluation methods for common features of various mobile household robots. This standard is neither concerned with safety nor with performance requirements. This standard will cover the generic performance test methods for mobile household robots within one document. However this current version is applicable for indoor floor supported wheeled or wheel-track robots with focus on mobility and power consumption related performance. As the needs for manipulation related performance grows, it will be added into this generic performance standard.
