PR2 Safety

We take safety very seriously at Willow Garage for two main reasons:

  1. We don't want anyone to be hurt by our robots.
  2. We believe that personal robots will not gain wide acceptance unless safety concerns are adequately addressed.

One of the most important things we do is make safety related information available to everyone who uses our robots.

On this site you will find the following information:
