Abstract—Autonomy is a fundamental attribute of robotics, yet it is one of the hardest terms to define, assess and regulate. Autonomy probably poses the greatest safety challenge within the medical field. AI methods and decision support systems are playing an increasing role in all domains of healthcare, and their breakthrough in medical robotics is just around the corner, assuming a safe regulatory framework can be developed. Supporting these trends, a new generation of robotics standards is emerging both in the IEEE and in the ISO/IEC domain, already focusing on the big challenge of the future medical systems: autonomy. This work provides a brief overview of the brand new standards targeting this complex area.
