- The manufacturers of systems have different concepts where safety is functional located, e.g. the hardware and software implementation.
- The safety state typically applies to the entire robotic system. If multiple safety state instances are implemented in robotic systems, these can be represented by individual instances of the SafetyStateType and associated with the controller by reference.
The safety state is for informational purpose only and not intended for use with functional safety applications as defined in ISO 61508.
