Urban Robotics Foundation Logo


The Urban Robotics Foundation (URF) was created in 2021 as a not-for-profit organization to bring together stakeholders from around the world who are interested in the opportunities and challenges presented by public-area mobile robots (PMRs) and to help shape the new international standard for deployment and governance of this technology.

URF is helping create pathways to readiness for PMRs with a focus on accessibility and improved livability in urban spaces. They publish and promote URF’s Guides to PMRs, conduct workshops and webinars, provide advisory services, and are drafting ISO-TS4448, the new global standard that sets the parameters and procedures for Intelligent Transport Systems (PMRs and automated pathway devices).
