After the ISO 10218-1/2 in 2011, safety factors for industry robot are standardized. As robotics expands its area from industry further into service, educational, healthcare and etc., both human and robot are exposed to a space with more openness and less certainty. Because there is no common safety specification, we raise in this paper our own hypotheses on the safety requirements in dense human-robot co-existing scenarios and focus more on demonstrating the possibilities provided by the research field named Ubiquitous Computing.
